How about arranging some high quality telepresence rooms? A number of
the big companies associated with OpenStack either make or own some
pretty nice systems. Perhaps it could be negotiated for some of these
companies to open their doors to allow OpenStack developers for some
scheduled events.

With some scheduling and coordination effort it would probably be
possible to setup a bunch of local meet-up points interconnected
by telepresence links.
