[Space] Fwd: [Noisebridge-discuss] Yuri's Night

What time is the meeting? I have to be in SF for work related stuff.
Keep in mind this is on a Federal Airfield, so there may be limits how high
you can fly a balloon.
(FYI, I was involved in the media team for 2007-8 Yuri's Night, and ran the
first SF shows in 2002-2003.)
For 2007-8 it was a Burner-ific event. This year is more mainstream, so I'm
not sure what is lined up exhibit-wise.
Note: Yuri's Night is synced up with the * Conrad Innovation Summit* (Inspiring
and rewarding students to create new products): *April 8-10, 2010*
*Yuri's Night Bay Area* (one of the largest space education/parties in the
world): *April 9-10, 2010*
Note: Conrad Summit and Yuri's Night are teaming up together with some
serious space celebs, including Anousheh Ansari!
The event is in two parts: the April 9th day is more education and kids, and
the 10th is a space party in TWO aircraft hangars, with speakers, exhibits
and music. This year there are some serious acts playing. I don't work for
YNBA this year, but that may change in a few days.
