I hadn't looked closely at the slot you're suggesting, but
now I've actually checked out the schedule I notice that
it would conflict with the second UserGlos session. As
many of the participants for the NIR session are User
Services people, this seems unwise. I don't see anything
scheduled for Thursday night after the 6pm tech
presentations. Any reason why we can't book a tentative
slot then? It seems that all of the other potential slots
have something of interest (at least to me... :-)

Actually, judging from the fervor we found at the various
related sessions last time, I bet we _could_ use them
both, but since the objective is to allow everyone to
participate I think finding a new slot is the best we can
hope for. Going for Thursday night means we can go for a
while, i is nothing after except the Bar BOF. :-)

I agree that we should reserve something now, and
tentatively suggest Thursday night after the 4-6pm
technical sessions. Obviously people have to eat, so how
about 7pm? Megan? Steve? Others?
