Thanks to all that came out this weekend to the first Dallas WordPress Meetup and if you were not able to attend thats ok there is always next month. May 24th 2008 wordpress.meetup.com/178/calendar/
If you haven't noticed there is already another planned meet up for May and some people have already confirmed attending. What I need is suggestions of where to have future meetings. Cafe Brazil was a wonderful location but I would like to move the event around DFW so everyone gets a chance to show up. What we need is suggestions of places that have free wifi and food. If you know of a restaurant in your area that might be able to provide the right amenities, food and wifi then feel free to place a suggestion in the Dallas WordPress Meetup message board.The Dallas/Ft.

For the next May 24th meetup I was thinking of having it at Trinity Hall Pub at Mockingbird Station. You can find their menu at their website trinityhall.tv
. They have free wifi and great authentic Irish cuisine. If you have any other suggestions you can post them on the WordPress Meetup message board. The Dallas/Ft. Worth Area WordPress Meetup message boards
If you attended the first meet up and took some photos make sure you post them on the meet up photo album so we can all see the fun. I have already posted three photos up there for everyone to see but you will find when you come to the meetings its easy to get wrapped up in a conversation with a fellow blogger. wordpress.meetup.com/178/photos/
If you are wondering what happened at the first meeting well alot. We talked about various topics including the infamous micro blogging platform Twitter. Numerous laptops shared space on the table with great food from Cafe Brazil and the occasional business card was passed around as we introduced ourselves, our blogs, and what we do for a living.

attended and broadcasted some of the introductions live using a Nokia N95 on qik.com. The recorded video can be found at http://qik.com/video/65831
a great video for learning more about your fellow members and new friends.
