Excellent conversations and perspectives. I would like the sessions to have an end tone to it that talks about how what we discussed today is going to impact our lives going fwd, if at all. We could also ask around if anyone is willing to go deeper in to any of the ideas or perspectives bounced during the session and if they needed any help on it.

Fantastic meet! Thank you to everyone who attended. I will see y'all next month!
Started out slow, afterward I enjoyed the conversation and meeting everyone
I am here, looking forward to those who can make it
On my way, got delayed.
Hey I will be 30 mins late but still gonna come to the meetup with my roommate
Great! We will most likely take the entire allotted time so come by why you can.
I look forward to meeting everyone today! I will be wearing a red UH polo shirt so I should be easy to spot. Also, last time there was some issues with Google maps or other GPS integrated maps that apparently did not show a Cafe Express on their maps. The address above is accurate. If you have trouble with the restaurant location, know that it is directly next to the Starbucks. And both businesses are in between car dealership and Koch industries building. I hope all this helps!
I really wanted to come but am sick. You guys have fun!!

Since no one has offered any video suggestions yet and centering talks around only one video for an hour and half would be stretching it, I have put up two more video links. If someone does have a video please submit by Friday. Thanks for everyone's time; I will see y'all Sunday!
