    Thanks Bob, it'll be great to hear your perspective. On a side note, the person that runs the delicious Library coffee shop owns an Eritrean (think Ethiopian) restaurant a couple of blocks from Stetson's called Keren (http://www.yelp.com/biz/keren-restaurant-washington). If you're looking for dinner in the area it would be a great place to check out.

      I'll second Butch's recommendation - that's a tasty place

    I'm curious about the opportunities for the digital heritage community (not just in DC) - what are some of the projects we should try to encourage and realize in the next year or two?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
