IIRC, the installfests moved out of Google well before Andrew's
involvement, and the venue change was preceded with a protracted period
of impaired communication between SVLUG and then-Google liaison Leslie
Hawthorn. Before speculating whether Michael was to blame, it might be
of note that (IIRC) Google was still his employer at that time, before
he moved to Sony.
