Editor's notes:

The Pico stop on the L.A. metro blue line stops practically at the Hotel's door. There's a free shuttle at the airport to take you to the nearby metro. The whole trip is around 45 - 60 minutes and cost arround $2.50. Nice new Metro. Buck the L.A. car thing. Nice website with maps etc. http://www.mta.net

A single-topic bulletin board dedicated to the meeting has been established at: http://disc.server.com/Indices/204832.html.
