I thought the second day was better, and we priced it just about at cost to us. Hotel food would have been more expensive, as would everthing else.

This was a bit of a nuisance, especially for those unable to walk the several blocks to the restaurants and cafes. University campuses in the summer have limited dining facilities as compared to hotels.However, I have no doubt that the UC Berkeley venue (apart from being attractive) helped us to attract the extraordinarily high quality of speakers we had.

Just not enough time. I would like to have an Extro 4 T-shirt, and will send out an order form along with other E4 updates so we can plan how many of each size to make.

I look forward to more feedback both positive and constructively critical.
