What Jonathan L. is saying about this Meetup Group

Hi everyone. I thought last Sundays meeting was a great start! First things first, some things I thought I could have done better as organizer: 1) Initial Discussion could have been more structured with a fixed topic and allocated speaker with a time limit (Thank you Ooi for your suggestion) 2) Location could have been more conducive. I thought it was good but not optimal. I promise to look into this! 3) I was lucky that this group was fairly small so a round table discussion could include every one. I think I will have to think of a more sophisticated program to keep every one engaged for future events Regardless, i think this meeting was a very positive start. Everyone was seriously interested in the questions and problems posed and had no problem being criticized or offering criticism. We had a good number of profound views on a broad array of topics (maybe too many this time! but this should improve with a more structured program). I shall be posting minutes shortly =)
