It was great to see so many people attend and to be able to share resources!

Phil's right, with the large turnout it did get a little unwieldy. I was somewhat unprepared for this because in the past some of our meetups have had lots of RSVPs, but then we'd still only have a few people show up. So to have a meeting this large was a very pleasant surprise.
Also I need to apologize for the hot room, I'll have to ask the school if there's a way to keep the place cool after the day ends so it's still comfortable when our meeting starts.
I'm going to take Phil's suggestion to heart, and work on our next meeting at the Khabele School in August as something that will work better if we want to talk and exchange info in smaller groups. Perhaps, since there's a kitchen there, we can do the next group as a potluck dinner, and we can eat and socialize for the first part of the meeting and then have a discussion about our favorite tips and tricks. Thanks again to everyone for coming tonight!

Actually, I thought there were too many people. I prefer to be involved more. If the group had been in a different setting, where it could be divided into subgroups (like a party), that would have been fabulous :)
The topic didn't provide me with much insight. Although it's, in general, a nice topic, I would rather hear information from my fellow local designers about their own personal tricks, tips, and wisdom. Stuff I can learn from. Like how they do their work. General opinions or arguments are information readily accessible to me from common syndicated formats like blogs and magazines. If we could take advantage of the fact we have a groups of locals who are all trying to do the same kind of thing... there might be some synergy.
