    The meetup was great. I enjoyed meeting everyone and look forward to working on an interesting project.

    I like both those ideas. I'll do my best to be in Novi before 6 on Tuesday. I'm on my way home from Ohio that afternoon, so don't wait for me if I'm late!

    Great idea, Paul!

    Another thought along similar lines is participating in one of the crowdsourcing contests hosted by Kaggle or CrowdAnalytix. Entering these as a group is perfectly acceptable and will give everyone great exposure to real predictive analytics problems and an externally managed frame of reference.

    Another suggestion for a future meeting is to list some potential collaborative projects that we could undertake as a group to help the community. For instance, can we take any publicly available municipal data and develop a data product or report? This would: help us gel as a group, be a great learning experience and possibly get us some recognition.
