    Meetup was great!

    Just wanted to reiterate - a great book on designing for choice is "Nudge" by Richard Thaler.

    Also, I am currently reading an interesting book on how to make better choices. I think it would go very well with this discussion and with the Nudge book. It is called "Decisive - How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work" by Chip & Dan Heath.

    Good burritos and a good discussion/presentation of a principle that we all need to keep in mind, with smart dudes who dig UX. What's better than that?

    if the address doesn't pull up on your mapping machines.... just look for the building that looks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c0hpe1bv9vb8zi1/vivint.JPG

    Its right behind Firehouse Subs and Mtn West Burrito (which you'll be eating for lunch) just off the Highland/Alpine exit.

    See ya there... high noon.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
