I view personal and work travel as two very different things, so I'm 
not looking for IETFs to meet in places I want to visit (I'll go on 
my own).  Personally, I hate going to cold places (I never check bags 
and much prefer flying with lighter/fewer clothing layers), and felt 
that Hawaii was a terrific meeting venue (especially because the 
reception and other events could be held outdoors, and we could talk 
to people without going hoarse from shouting).  I do think the 
Minneapolis, Vancouver, and Dallas venues worked well.
