See http://1.JotHere.com/965#MNCK5C --just follow that link for details on this occurrence, plus all before & after, including all current & historic changes & traditions

MKFRD3: Note several mobile web browsers, when following a link/URL, strip the link's bookmark/anchor (which is the URL text starting "#..") so in the opened web page page position it at the start instead of scrolling it to the desired point.
MKFRIB: to fix this, get a web browser which doesn't have this bug or else search & position to the anchor point manually.
MMIWYG: -we realize there “it's hard to see the forest (current details) due to the trees (all historic details)” +other formatting woes; so the formatting will eventually be improving, and in rather exciting ways (as auto-generated listings).

    Hi everyone! My name is Ben, I'm a developer for Google Glass. I've been developing since I got my hands on the device back in late February. For all of you aspiring developers for Google Glass, it's a very challenging device to develop for, especially since it's a prototype technology that's SDK isn't even completely finished yet. Developing for Glass is challenging, but designing for the device is even harder, especially with the fairly small display, Google's strict guidelines, and heavy emphasis on UX.

    I talked to Michael today at PeopleSpace, and I'm more than happy to do a talk on what it's like developing for Glass, things to keep in mind, and more. I can go ahead and start this talk at 6:00 and won't go later than 7:00. I'll also be happy to demo my Glassware and talk about the perspective of the device from a developer's standpoint.

    And also, I'll have my Glass, ready for you guys to play with :)

    Best,
    Ben

    ANOTHER MTG TOPIC (as time & interest as this is a leader topic) NEW SOLUTION FOR PROCESSING MEMBER APPS & KEEPING UP TO STANDARD: linking applicants to the article “How to get accepted & kept in your chosen quality Meetup group” http://1.JotHere.com/4343#N2071...­ (being 1st announced at this mtg!) --put all on that here in this thread

    March 6

    • DestinyArchitect

      *This thread's URL: http://meetup.com/OCA...­
      *“N23HAS At the meeting, among us leaders (I, Martin, & Lucy), I brought this up and they looked it over talked about 30min on it which was useful, and though a bit painful at first, rather productive; and, after a rough start, though my bouncing back from the painful (as rather unbalanced harsh-negative) criticisms of it, and then taking up Martin's good idea & suggestion, I came up & worked out especially with him some good improvements to it for me to further develop and then us to give them a try.”
      **Because it's especially tough to write & link-to items here, plus impossible to edit later, plus this is a lot of leader stuff, I will instead put what happened here in the article's entry for this announcement http://1.JotHere.com/...­ -check back in a few days and I should have those details there.

    GOOGLE GLASS -A HANDS-ON DEMO INCLUDING LIVE ANDROID SYNC + POSSIBLE-CLOUD SYNC, by my bud JH http://meetup.com/members/10587...­­
    *I just met up w/my years-long bud JH and he showed me&had me try on his Google Glass http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go...­ he just got yesterday _even tho it's not yet generally publicly released_ incl he had it VOICE CONTROLLED+syncing real time & DISPLAYING WHAT IT SEES LIVE on his Android ph, ON HIS HUGE SAMSUNG NOTE II http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sa...­ --all very impressive!
    *+he says he can give us a hands-on demo during our main mtg! -this 1 or next.
    **This is big enough I replied I'd be willing to move our main mtg date somewhat to fit his sched; +he'd be driving to us from UCLA(much thx)!
    **Moreover, as I just SMSed him, quote( if around 17th it be perfect needed timing to both boost [main mtg ]attendance(very much needed) + get volunteers for [our ]Feb22-23 SCaLE booth[ http://meetu.ps/xNgM0­ ]. 7:49 PM) :-)

    February 1

    • DestinyArchitect

      *As he promised, we expected speaker JH on his way here (driving from all the way from UCLA).
      *But because of looking-like significant(2) no-shows (which indeed happened http://meetup.com/OCA...­ ), to then possibly save him at least some of the trip,
      **I SMSed him quote(
      3/6/14 8:36 PM 20 hours ago 

      Me: Where are u as far as ur trip down here? -if u can firmly set ur 2nd Glass at OCAndroid demo date, I might have another option for u. 7:09 PM
      ) **Then getting no reply (as he was driving), I called him: “3/6/14 7:21 PM 21 hours ago 6 minutes long”
      ***He answered. Indeed now was all the way to GG (maybe 2/3rds of the distance). When he heard the news he was quite upset, but stopped driving and said yes, either tonight or tomorrow he would contact me with a replacement date for his demo.

    • DestinyArchitect

      *so about hr later, JH so I SMS:
      JH: I can do 3/27/2014 after work again like tonight. 8:29 PM
      Me: Ok, Martin & I are good for this so we'll do it: it will be on http://meetup.com/OCA...­ - stay tune for updates there! 8:36 PM
      *So then when we exited the venue at 9:55pm, with the cashier I reserved it again: from pic 20140306_215658.jpg:
      **2014.03.24(Mon#4)1730-­2130 for http://meetup.com/OCP...­
      **2014.03.27(Thu#4)1730-­2130 for http://meetup.com/OCA...­
      ****For this Google Glass redo, which I've this afternoon also listed there, too, but point back to this thread for the presentation discussion since it didn't happen this 1st time so then to reuse this thread rather than have to create a new one there.

    **Thanks. Actually that nice response goes in u"your public RSVP" (so as a comment here in this ur participation-thread u ideally create for urself)
    *So we quite looked fwd to 1st seeing him,
    **esp as this particular mtg with so few(just 3 non-ldr) YES RSVPs(as expected,&temporary) so as we posted here http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve...­ we'd delayed it if not for his YES RSVP.

      *Well Avram still he never replied, including never replied posted (so now I'm having to do it for him). And while this fine if he was sick that night, why not then this next day today?

      NO-SHOWS: *ALL*(2)NON-LEADER NON-PRESENTERS!
      *It was the 2 1st timers:
      **Avram Grossman http://meetup.com/OCA...­ (he did finally reply "At home with a cold 6:52 PM" but by then it was too late)
      **Sonny Ochoa http://meetup.com/OCA...­
      *NO-SHOWS,u cost us all notably here.
      Be alert&considerate that:
      **when an event has low YES RSVPs as this had(just 6 total), then ur YES RSVP really counts so make it else update&say here b4 so hosts may reschedule.
      ***As we hosts almost did cause of low RSVP YES
      ****&unless u mucked w/ur comm settings http://Meetup.com/OCA...­ , Meetup sent u that post: http://meetup.com/OCA...­
      ****as u cd guess fr that, WE'D HV DELAYED THIS MTG IF NOT UR YES RSVP.
      *But since u no-showed,3 ldrs came,+speaker JH drove 1/2way here from UCLA! -not good.
      **Apologize.

      **How were you referred to this? -as by what URL?
      **Yes a very innovative approach (using a mobile OS device, as your smartphone, as your USB drive), one I've never heard of till you've shared me this

  • DestinyArchitect

    WHEN
    *It's now 17:20 hrs before start time, and we just have 4 RSVP YESes & all leaders (so were automatically RSVPed. And I suspect our notably low RSVPs YES are because of the holidays (plus new members needing processing -I'm working on that http://meetup.com/OCAndroid/eve...­ but results will take weeks at least).
    *So, at ~noon, UNLESS Replies here reasonably objecting plus ideally more YES RSVPs, I WILL MOVE THIS FORWARD 1 MONTH:
    **From today 2013.12.09(Mon#2) to 2014.01.13(Mon#2).

    December 9

    • DestinyArchitect

      Karmen,
      **delighted to see you came again! And made this post you were there! Plus delightfully the venue also let me know (when I just called them, N1619D in next cmt); yes I wish we had enough RSVP YESes then to have it then!
      **A good rule of thumb is especially for any event has low YES RSVPs, before you leave to it, reload the official event listing page to see any updates: would have saved u a trip here!
      ***This also works great if you arrive there but don't find anyone, as it seems you smartly did.
      **We quite look forward to seeing you again, especially at this event when it happens shortly! Lucy well remembers you and regularly asks about you.

      **Our understandably so far low RSVPs YES

      ***as to be expected as the huge dam of pending members hasn't yet been released, though I'm making progress http://meetup.com/OCA...­
      **and esp JH's call back N160DL http://meetup.com/OCA...­ saying he can present Glass for us 2013.03.07Thu!
      *I just called our venue, call N1619D, and Jose answered.
      **He did this venue rescheduling no problem
