      • Matt Peterson offered to bring 3 100mW APs and a Squid HTTP proxy box. This should bring us to 5 APs on Friday and 6 APs on Sat and Sunday. It would be nice to have some other people bring on or two APs as well just to be on the safe side.

    • ChristopherAllen: I'm bringing some prototype "tech in-a-box" hardware based on ideas from MashPit, which includes a rackmounted server with wireless PCI card, ethernet switch, powerstrip, etc. However, software needs to be installed (I brought the new Ubuntu server disks) and wifi typically has been difficult to configure with Linux. Can use help.

  • Network:
    • We have a 1599.4 Kbps (measured with bandwidth tool) Ethernet connection
    • We NEED wifi routers to plug into the Ethernet connections and test.


Here are a few rules from building management (Please note that Microsoft leases one floor in this building):


  1. All vendors should have a certificate of insurance on file with the building management before the event. I (Nima email: nimad at microsoft dot com) can handle this as soon as a vendor is identified.
  2. There should be no open flames in the building at anytime. This includes sterno and compressed gas used by caterers to heat up food. Electric chafing dishes and electric ovens are ok.
  3. There should be no smoking anywhere in the building.
  4. We should only hang out in the Microsoft offices during BarCamp. We should not hang out in the stairs or in the lobby.
