Since the government got shut down and NASA canceled the remainder of the asteroid workshop in Houston today and tomorrow, B612 decided to just go ahead and sponsor the meeting ourselves so the participants can still meet.   Here is what we sent to the participants this morning:

Dear Asteroid Initiative Ideas Synthesis Workshop Attendees: To keep the asteroid initiative conversation moving forward, B612 is hosting an Asteroid Un Conference today Hilton Hotel @ NASA on 3000 Parkway from 2:30 pm to 6pm.  Coffee and healthy snacks will be provided and other items can be purchased on your own dime.  

You can learn more about the unconference format here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference.  Essentially discussions in small groups will be created by whatever the participants would like to propose, i.e. one big networking session.
