Last year they just held it in the area outside where the javaone vendor
pavillion is, down the escallator where they usually have a bunch of 
bean bag seeting and the wall of video.  And people hung out and talked

big or crowed that you would not see a sign if you walked around a bit.
But of course I have no idea what they will do this year.
