I wasn't at the Macomb Library for the last one so I'm asking those of
you who were: how does it compare to the Farmington Library for such
an event?  I'm pretty sure we could come up with the cash to reserve
it if it is a lot better.

And, regarding the creation of other locations (west side, UP): GO FOR
IT!  That'd be great if we could get a couple more jams going on the
same day/time.  To reiterate what Rick said; let the mailing list know
if there is anything you need to get the event off the ground (blog
posts on planet.ubuntu.com, liveCDs, etc).
