I made it in late to the meetup but the conversation was lively and interesting. I enjoyed it very much.

Fantastic! Loved it! Even though I was late, and was in and out of most of the people, the people are so smart! WOW!
To those still coming, we are having our discussion in the main eating area closes to the bar. If you are having trouble finding this location, look at the message below this.

Coming. Is the location shown on the meetup map correct? I think it may be displaying a different location.
I look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow for our discussion! I will be wearing a bright red UH t-shirt. Look for me or our group in the main eating area.
Note: Some GPS systems will not show the Cafe Express in the location given. The directions are correct. If you need additional help finding the restaurant, search for the Starbucks in the same area. Also, this Cafe Express is directly next to Lakewood church, Edwards Greenway RPX movie theater, and Koch Industries building all along SW Freeway.
Have to work now. Y'all have fun.

Because I did not get a third video submitted for viewing, I have gone ahead and added Timothy Baritik's talk.

I originally put that the theme is education when setting up the event. I think it did not get transferred over with the new Meetup format update. Regardless, education is the theme.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
