I found myself back in Robinson last Friday night, to celebrate the
Professorship of my old Director of Studies -- the person who always
used to tell me off for wasting my time on what I now get paid for
doing. I realised that they could actually host the format we want for
the Kernel Summit quite well -- the main hall is perfectly sufficient
for the 100-odd people cabaret style that we want, and there's a
separate cafeteria which would house that number of people too, without
us having to eat in the same room where we work.

I suppose it's a bit late to be saying that now... but maybe worth
bearing in mind for next year :)

'binson is a bit far out to recommend it as accommodation while the
conference is at the University Arms though -- I'd be most inclined to
go for Downing.
