San Francisco reader meetup details, note: location has changed!

Last week in Tokyo was pretty amazing, but this Wednesday's reader event in San Francisco promises to be possibly our most amazing yet. Here's a bit about what you can expect:

  • We're giving away literally tens of thousands of dollars in gear, including...

  • A free Sandisk Sansa Connect (4GB with WiFi) to the first 200 people! (And free Flickr Pro accounts for the next 250 people.)

  • We'll also have free food and drinks!

  • Live Q&A session with Engadget

  • The event is ALL AGES and FREE ADMISSION

  • As well as giveaways from: Drobo, Motorola, Nokia, OQO, Plantronics, Samsung, SanDisk, Sling, and others!

When: Wednesday, October 10th, 7:00PM - 10:00PM [Listing on Upcoming]
Please note, however, that we have changed our event location! We are no longer holding the event at Mighty, the event is now at the Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF.

1675 Owens Street
San Francisco, CA 94158

Also, a note to the local hackers in the audience! We'd like to try out the "lightning talks" round here in the US -- let us know if you have something interesting and electronic that you might want to show off!

We'd also like to thank the premium event sponsor of our San Francisco event, the Bluetooth SIG, who've been instrumental in getting this thing off the ground!

Oh, and please leave us a comment if you're thinking of attending so we can at least try to estimate how many to expect. See you there! (Map, directions, and full list of companies at the event after the break.)
