I'm torn between preparing something officious and "useful" featuring
short presentations and lightning tutorials vs, I dunno, just drinking
beer and eating fries. Maybe there's room for a little of both. It _is_
San Francisco, after all. :)
My schedule--like yours, I'm sure--is a little frantic from here
through January, but, I thought I'd at least float the idea and let you
kids mull it over.
I'm thinking somewhere in late October or early November. Maybe a
Friday night so you can make it a night on the town if you like.
Feel free to float opinions, locations, topics, and what have you. I'll
probably make a decision one way or an other in the next week or two.
I'd love the chance to shake hands and talk shop with you.
Friday night or Saturday works the best for me, but I can probably
manage it on other days, too.
Late in October is OSXcon, which many people on the list will
(hopefully) be at. It's October 25-28. If people are sticking around,
maybe Friday the 29th would work, you might pull in some out-of-towners
staying after the conference.
If I agree to grow a long beard and wear a too-small tshirt with a
unix joke on it, will you comp me to OSXCon? ;-)
Well, my house is just around the corner from the usual OXCon
convention hotel. And we often have parties to co-incide with Santa
Clara O'Reilly fests (http://www.ambiguous.org/gallery/album01 for
instance). Let's have it at my house.
(Especially as I am on a mission to lure Merlin from the city. Woohoo.)
Heh. Yeah, regrettably, Meetup is apparently only useful when you want
to *announce* a decided-upon location and time. I'd personally find it
a lot more useful if you could first just post the idea, and take
suggestions from possible attendants.
FWIW, it's looking like it will be somewhere near Santa Clara
(valley/peninsula) at the time of OSXCon (Oct. 25-28). Danny had
gallantly nominated his home, but exact location is up in the air.
Good ping. I'll work on nailing this down. Tx.
...looking forward to sharing beer and GTD tips with people here in
