  9. Some listing history, in order: :MBYIVO
    1. MC6S7A: pdt[masked]thu16: at MobileCampLA, presenter Microsoft's Alice Pang 1st told Destiny of this event "teaching robots to kids" and invited her to join her. And by amazing coincidence, this happened to be a notably good match given, what she hadn't know of: Destiny's significant accomplishment introducing & teaching autonomous robotics at MIT, as founder there of the now-famous autonomous robot contest there which now 1 of about every 4 MIT students takes: see "bragging rights" in his Google Profile; indeed, in the 3rd contest, he had even got Microsoft sponsoring ~$10K to the contest and ended up landed Microsoft hiring a few employees from among his contestants!
    2. MC67VT: pdt[masked]fri1748- Destiny created this event listing by copying our last event's listing since that had the latest formatting, then adding the details from the event organizer at Microsoft; pdt[masked]fri0008.
    3. MC6NBP: considerable updates now that I found official URLs; pdt[masked]sat0224.
    4. MC6RN4: pic; added; IDs: per what I had been thinking & now Bill's suggestion, redid so the are on the right and tinest & invsibile; pdt[masked]sat0325.
    5. MC6TD6: title fr(observe 5th-8th graders introed2 IT-&robot-making (#1)+ (on OCAndroid))cut from end of title " (on OCAndroid)" per Bill's note that that seems superfluous and indeed most Meetup listings don't bother with the group name in the page; with the additional space, made title more clear; to(observe 5th-8th graders introed to IT-&robot-making by Microsoft & more (#1)+); changed venue name fr(address told to those who RSVP YES and are selected to attend) to (exact address immediately told to those who RSVP YES once spot opens); MC687X: extended with key details as "Event already started?" and "visit for as little as 15min", key since the notice is understandably so short; pdt[masked]sat0401.
    6. MC6UYA: pdt[masked]sat0407: 1st announced (emailed) this to group members. Included the special message "RSVP Now. This is cool stuff! Note you can come for as little as 15 min & RSVP even during the event. Short notice unavoidable as I just go the full news of this just hours ago."
