Till this most-recent meetup #5, it has been an interesting and important group. There seems to be 'sufficient interest' (people-wise) in this subject matter, especially in our geographical region. I think this particular meetup group currently lacks an 'effective' MISSION-statement and stated PURPOSE, either or both of which would give the group a more 'solid' future direction. It really doesn't matter if the purpose is for 'informal get-togethers' to explore spontaneous exchanges or more 'formal' robot-related presentations, each meetup needs to have an 'interested' moderator present and an adherence to the topical-subject 'advertised' for that particular get-together.
