The venue looiks & feel indeed good, but 153 places for the big room
might be too little.

Then again a possibility is that we have 'the Nokia day' with more
keynotes and a more user oriented agenda in one place that can handle
that and then the other 2 days more oriented to community and more
distributed activities that would fit in a place like this.

The Go/NoGo doesn't rely on me alone as I want to have the community
council just as convinced (and Peter @ Nokia, but I can sync with him).

I think we must do some more research before making a decision. After
asking some friends and searching a bit I came up with other possible
locations. See http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo_Summit_2009#Candidate_locations

Please add more candidates you think could fit, and add comments about
the candidates you have a reference about.

Also, we should expand the call.
