I set up the group. I like the way meetups bring together the best aspects of "traditional" meetings (i.e. face-to-face with real people) and all the Internet benefits of finding new people with shared interests, and arranging things together effectively online. When I wanted to explore some ideas about change and collaboration (being "stronger together") starting a meet-up group seemed the ideal way forward.
I want to find other people with related interests.
I hope topics will emerge from the interests of the group - but inevitably the first sessions will be around my own interests. As we get to know each other in the group other perspectives about change and collaboration will become evident. I hope that as time goes by we will do more that simply share ideas and information. I hope some of us will find ways to join with others to be "stronger together" in projects we are doing - perhaps through the meetup group, or online, or in our local areas.
The easiest profile to see is at http://www.dadamac.net/about/pam - but I confess it's longer that I'd like it to be for this purpose.
I like to collaborate with other people, which is why I started these meetups.
