    Great meet up last night!

    I'm still interested in the idea of starting a bookclub/study group for The Startup Owner's Manual. I'm a Surf member and could provide space for the meetings, but I don't want to be the solo organizer. If someone would help in the scheduling and coordination, we could kick this thing off!

      I'll come to the events, got the book already but it would be great to have some discussions around the subjects
