> meeting space at the Infinite Energy Forum in NE Atlanta.  Nearby hotels
> are listed.  It's an excellent meeting site close enough to walk to hotels
> and dining.  More details will come out as we get closer.  Minor things I

> on the list and social media.   Feel free to go ahead and sign up on the
> attendees page and if you're planning to attend and don't have a WIKI
> account I'll be glad to add you.  Similarly, feel free to go ahead and add
> topics of discussion to the agenda.
> After some discussion and a resounding lack of objection (and quite a bit
> of praise for the idea) we are going to go ahead and announce that the 2019
> Hack-A-Way will be in Indiana again thanks to the gracious hosting of
> Evergreen Indiana and the Indiana State Library.  Choosing them in advance
> allows them to incorporate the event into their budget cycle.
> In that spirit of choosing our locations far enough out to give hosts
> plenty of time to plan I am also opening the floor to proposals to host the
> 2020 Hack-A-Way at this point.  All I need at this point is an informal
> "we're interested." Right now Mobius has their hat in the ring and although
> I'd love to see more of MO in fairness to everyone I'll keep informal
> offers open until November 1st.  If more than one entity is interested in
> hosting I will then ask everyone for more formal proposals and go through
> the selection process.
> If anyone has any questions, let me know.  Thanks!
