The day I flew home, I went into San Francisco to check out The Metreon with the always incredible Leslie and Cat from Google, and the venue is simply incredible – it is a perfect place for LugRadio Live USA 2008, has a stunning view, and has plenty of room for the talks, exhibitors and BOFs. It is right in the heart of San Francisco, and it is going to be an incredible event. :)

I will be announcing the final, complete list of speakers over the next day or so.
