    Welcome to the PHP group. Based on your profile, I'm guessing you may find some people in our group that could be useful in your startup endeavors. Hopefully you can make it tonight. Our next meetup after tonight will be June 14th.

    Great to have you aboard Ben. I feel you pain with the scheduling, but I think if the project and timing are right you will find time to fit in a little shoot here and there.

    Nice to see you on here. Alex tells me you're quite the photographer (and an honest critic too.) Bring it on - I'm here looking to improve my eye and welcome constructive criticism.

    Hi Ben - are you the same Ben Wong that worked at Northern Trust for a spell a few years back?

    I would love to say I did, but Rob beat you to it, I just put it on Meetup. Our little group, while admittedly small, was a flickr group. Hopefully this expands the pool of potential members a bit. Welcome to our little group Ben, we look forward to meeting you and seeing what you've got. We are happy to have you aboard.

    Nice pic, Ben! Did you do any post production tweaks on this? My colors did not turn out as dynamic as yours. (Hope your daughter thawed out okay!)
