I've stepped up as the new Organizer, and I'd like to open the "What Happens Now?" conversation to the 113 (and counting) members of our group. The Message Board is now active, and has a post called "Future Meeting Topics; Be a Presenter; Offer Space" that will be our open discussion on where we're going as a group.
Let's aim to get larger meeting of[masked] people started in January 2009, and begin with smaller, more intimate meet-and-greets around November 19 and December 17. I also organize a group called Jelly LA, casual co-working in several venues in Los Angeles, and have a few venues that may be able to host these smaller groups.
While I plan these Meetups, get to the Message Board and start proposing meeting topics, offering your services as a presenter, and/or donating space.
Thanks for sticking with the group, and now let's get this thing going strong!
