I will do my best to see if a display for the space can be created - but there are no banners that I'm aware of here in the office. I've been looking at, but not had the time, to create a nice pop up banner with the Wikipedia and/or Wikimedia logo. But I might try to address that in the next few days if I have time.

Right now our intern Deniz is putting together a box of all the available stickers/etc we have to offer for the event - which includes the remaining Wikipedia vests. Once we have a sense of what's in there we'll let you know Phoebe and make it available for pickup or delivery.

OK, so here is where we are at:
* We have a limited amount of swag
* We have the vests (I have some, Ariel has some)
* We have some computers coming from the WMF offices, to be picked up
on the friday before (do those come with monitors? :) )
* plus a plethora of laptops

* Phoebe and Jon to set up on Friday; other volunteers?

* we are located next to Wikihow, so we can share people if necessary;
Chris Hadley (cc'd) is the contact for WikiHow

* The pass situation -- both Jon and I have been pestering O'Reilly
people, but no answer yet.


* Some sort of sign/banner advertising our Wikimedia-ness (Jay, does
the office have any banners?)
* Ideas for visualizations to run on the computers
* Ideas for an "interactive" display (guess the picture? learn how to edit?)
* Ideas for a couple of big signs to hang -- I don't think we have
space for the projector and cloth this year -- so are there other big
poster ideas we could make up? A giant markup cheatsheet? Please send
your ideas ASAP and I'll get some posters made up.
* more folding chairs -- does anyone have some they can loan?
* what about info-en business cards like someone suggested?

* And we need. ... you to sign up if you're planning on volunteering
and haven't already:
