Great group of industry and research pros. Interesting talk from Jacob; more exciting even to brainstorm about future meetings.

The tentative title for my talk is "NLTK: the good, the bad, and the awesome", and I plan to talk about corpus bootstrapping for training custom taggers, chunkers, and classifiers.

Thanks again for agreeing to be the speaker, Jacob. I'm looking forward to it, as are the couple of other people that I've talked to about it.
Just my $0.02 on topic suggestions: Maybe you could give a general overview and give people a better sense of what it can do for them and what its relative strengths and weaknesses are. (If you can do that by comparison to other toolkits, that'd be awesome.) But let's see what others think...

I'm open to any specific NLTK topic suggestions...
Okay, how does July 7th sound? Jacob Perkins has agreed to give the first talk, which will be about the Python Natural Language Tool Kit (www.nltk.org).

Would love to see this happen sometime after July 6th.

Okay, the Chomp office has expanded, meaning that we now have space to host the meetup in SF. So let's plan our first meeting. I think we want to wait until after ACL. That doesn't leave much room for June. How about the first or second week or July?

Hi, Bruce. Thanks. I think we have a location available in either SF or Mountain View. I'll have word soon and will keep folks posted.

Our main office is in Emeryville-- not convenient for a meetup. But, we also have a few desks at Citizen Space, on 2nd St near Harrison. We might be able to host an evening meetup there, sometime in June.
Actually, this meetup has even become active yet! I'd like to organize something for early next month. How does that sounds to people? The main thing is finding a venue.

Hey guys. Is this meetup still active? I would love to meet some other NLP'ers and see what people are working on.
I changed it to SF. That was originally my intention. It's just that my Oakland zip code and my old work zip code (Powerset) have a string edit distance of 1.

I wonder if we should shoot for a place in SF, since we're going to want to draw folks from the East Bay, the Peninsula, and the city. Ideally: not far from BART (for the east-bayers) nor caltrain (south).

Help support your Meetup
This is a group for people in the Bay Area who are interested in Natural Language Processing.
Since NLP overlaps with other fields, we may also delve into Information Retrieval and Machine Learning. If you are actively involved in NLP, or just want to learn more, please join us.
Note: This group has nothing to do with Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
