Registration is now closed. Voting members, prospective
members, and other observers should have registered already.
This is an official meeting of the SSTC; attendance will be
noted and will count towards good standing. Non-attending voting
members will not be allowed to give their proxy to an attendee.
Attendance by phone will not count towards good standing; neither
can phone attendees make motions or vote.
The meeting will be held at the Sun offices in Newark, in the
Central Park 215 room in building NWK17 (
map). The street address is 7777 Gateway Avenue. All of
the following directions have been provided by Jeff Hodges,
who lives in the area:
Directions from Palo Alto and other Peninsula locations:
Take University Avenue in Palo Alto eastbound (towards
the Bay), across 101, and continue through East Palo Alto
all the way until it T-bones into 84 at a stoplight and
you can turn only left or right. You will be able to see
the Dumbarton Bridge off to your right. Turn right.
 Go across the bay on the Dumbarton/84 until the first
exit after the toll plaza (which will be on your left as
you pass it) which is Thornton Ave.
At the end of the exit ramp, turn right onto Thorton (southbound).
Follow to the first light (several hundred yards/meters)
which is  Gateway Blvd, turn left (you can't turn right).
Follow to the next light (the W hotel is on your right
on this stretch, fyi).
Now, I seem to recall the Sun campus signs indicate that
NWK17 is straight ahead from this light. The other option
is to turn left. If you turn right, you head into Newark
Another option for reaching the Dumbarton is using Willow Ave
in Menlo Park (just north of Palo Alto):
Take Willow across 101 and follow all the way until it
T-bones into the Sun Menlo Park Campus at a stoplight.
At that light, turn right rather than enter the Sun campus.
Now follow until the next stoplight (which is University
Ave (see above directions)) -- go straight through and across
the Dumbarton/84 and follow the directions above beginning
at  above.
Directions from East Bay locations to the Sun Newark Campus:
Take your favorite path to the intersection of I-880 (main
north-south east bay freeway) and Decoto Road aka Hwy 84.
Take Decoto/84 westbound to the Thorton Ave exit.
Take the exit and at the end of the exit ramp, turn left
onto Thorton Ave southbound.
Follow Thorton across 84 and to Gateway Blvd and follow
directions at  above.
We will have a computer projector and whiteboard at our disposal.
Sun will be providing breakfast and lunch. If you have
food restrictions: Please note them in the comments
section of the Evite invitation or
