at the risk of introducing content onto the futures list:

as the minutes of the recent nanog program committee call mention (
http://www.nanog.org/pc.nanog42_minutes.html , october 30, item #1 )
the program committee is seriously considering revising the conference
schedule for nanog 42 in san jose by moving the start time an hour
later to 10h.  the end time would likely therefore be shifted to 18h
rather than 17h.  continental breakfast and coffee would probably be
available from 8:30 - 10:00 or so and the meeting/break-out room near
the plenary room would probably be available for meetings.

the rationale for the switch is that the earlier meeting time does not
allow for people to have substantial morning meetings prior to the
conference and may cut into some evening meeting/business/socializing
activities as well. several program committee members believed that
the new schedule would fit our audience preferences much better and
allow more people to attend the plenary session.

the majority of the program committee supported the change, but
requested that i survey attendees (or likely attendees) on
nanog-futures.  so this is that.

are there opinions on this change or questions about it?
