Just been at American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Fran. Around
26,000 people there. Also literally thousands of posters.
ApacheCon, for me anyways, has always been a conference in the corridors. I
feel that having posters would only add to this atmosphere and I feel it is
a fantastic idea (sorry Ross :)).
I feel that this is especially suited to the Science and Research track
where people could even reuse posters they have used elsewhere to further
promote their research.
Claude, I am willing to work with you to organize this.

Great idea Ross.

Claude and Lewis. We are on it. I think we should make it a casual affair
though and as Ross has stated near to the hackathon rooms.
