Double Super-Secret Googlefest

According to this thread, Google is hosting a big secret OFF THE RECORD confab in October:

Zeitgeist ’05: The Google Partner Forum is happening on Oct. 25-27, …About 400 people are on the invite only list…The traditional press is well in attendance, with James Fallows of the Atlantic Monthly, New Yorker staff writer Malcolm Gladwell, the chairman and publisher of the New York Times Arthur Sulzberger and others…

But…

All speeches and discussions at Zeitgeist are off the record. To ensure that our presenters and attendees can speak openly, no press coverage or blogging is permitted.

As everyone knows, an off the record conference with 400 attendees is a leaky conference. Just ask Michael Wolff. (Or Steve Rattner.)
