Welcome to the [Startup School](http://startupschool.org) Wiki!
## Getting there
* What: 2006 Startup School
* Where: Kresge Auditorium, Stanford University.
* When: 29 April 2006, 9:00 am.
## Startup Day 2006
* 20060619 - MP3/Slides?
* Where are the notes/mp3s about Startup Day 2006?
* Does anybody know whether there will be any mp3s posted?
* I have DV video of about 60% of Startup Day 2006 and will link it from here as I get it pieces posted -- Raines. Here's the patents session:
and here's Paul Graham of Y Combinator ("The hardest lessons for startups to learn") followed by Catrina Fake of Flickr:
* Please post MP3's of the talks. Thanks -- Amr
* When the mp3s are posted can somebody please post the announcement on reddit so I find out ;)
**[Live notes being posted every 10 to 15 minutes](http://notelab.infogami.com/startupschool2006)**
**[Startup School 2006 - a diary](http://rtalk.blogspot.com/2006/04/startup-school-2006-stanford-diary.html)**
Anyone know if the Kresge has WiFi - I see mention of SubEthaEdit etc, but it might be wise for that to be explicitly stated. I know Stanford has Wifi, but it's WEP keyed (or at least it was during my last visit)
* Kresge has Wifi, but it is provided by Stanford which requires having your computer registered. Plus you must be directly affilitated with the university. Someone could without too much effort set up an open ap.
* Hm, anyone able to bring an AP, or two?
[Stanford Visiting Resources](http://www.stanford.edu/dept/visitorinfo/resources/index.html) (is campus small enough that any of these are good? anyone know the area?)
* Campus is large, which is why most students ride bikes to get around, or take the free shuttle. Most of the Points of Interest are a long walk from Kresge (30-45 minutes) or require a car. Plus, it's the weekend, so any attractions/buildings may close early. If the weather's nice, just walk around the Main Quad, the Oval, MemChu.
anyone know if caltrain is good? Yes, unusually for bay area transportation it is exactly on time. Get to Palo Alto 20 mins early to get from the station to main campus (walking or waiting for the shuttle).
Caltrain works pretty well. You can get to it from SFO via the BART, and there's a shuttle bus from the train station that takes you around campus, [Marguerite](http://transportation.stanford.edu/marguerite/MargueriteSched.shtml#shopping) but check the schedule since it doesn't run that often on weekends.

## For Mac Users
I am going to be taking notes with [SubEthaEdit](http://www.codingmonkeys.de/subethaedit/), a collaborative group notetaking program. This worked very well in fall, and was a lot of fun too. If you want to get involved, just download the program. It is 30 day shareware for the newest version, and there is an older version you might be able to find that is completely free.
## The WWW (We Want Woz) Petition
For those of you who attended Startup School last October in Cambridge, you will probably agree that Steve Wozniak gave an awesome talk. He is an inspiration for all of us and I would sure love to see him again at Stanford! If you don't know about Woz, [check out his page on Wikipedia][woz]. Hint: Apple co-founder, invented the Apple II.
If you want to see Wozniak speak at Startup School Stanford 2006, please [[wozniak_petition|sign the petition]]!
