Sydney, congratulations on the first startup camp! Excellent results!
We need the same in Melbourne.
I can provide studio space in Fitzroy for 4-8 people with wireless and food just around the corner.
Seems that Melbourne Startup camp at 3-5 Oct brings a lot of interest...
15 spaces available at Fitzroy studio.
Please sign up who's coming
Sounds like a good weekend!

q: how many top-posters does it take to change a light-bulb?
I've extended the signup list to hold more names.
We'll need to decide on location depending on number of interested people.
The signup page again -
We have a great interest in the Startup Camp Melbourne event with 43 signups
We had 2 different venues wanted to host the event but eventually they both
At the moment we only have the initial venue that can only hold up to 20
So we urgently looking for another venue option!
We need a well-WiFied venue that has a large space that can hold 30-40
people and 3-4 break out areas for about 7-10 people each.
Ideally we also need projectors, whiteboards, and office supplies.
We would start at about 6pm Friday and go through until 6pm Sunday, the
teams will be working almost nonstop.
Given the work schedule we are also looking for food and drink sponsorship,
however at this stage a venue is top priority.
If you know a suitable venue, or organizations that could be interested to
sponsor and host the event, please let me know ASAP.
Perhaps if someone decided to sponsor they could just buy an unwired
box or temp 3g card? I don't see why internet would be required
Might be a long shot, but one of the sponsors at Influence Forum 08 was Netcomm. They’ve got a new WiFi router which back-ends onto Telstra Next-G, so if something like that could be offered up on a loan by Netcomm and/or Telstra, it would probably solve the communications issues.
Less elegant but also open to corporate generosity would be any carrier making a few GB of 3G internet access available for the weekend…
if you can't program without google maybe reconsider programming at all.

fair enough; i suppose i didn't understand the whole "startup" is
developed and released. clearly you'll need internet for that.

right. can't say i personally find any of that relevant, but to each his own.
