    Thanks to Duffy and Doug for taking minutes; this is a combination of their notes, part 1 of 3:

    1. Next topic-focused presentations January 16
    - Roland, Philipp, Peter confirmed for presentations
    - Greg to be host
    - Maud to be questions moderator

    2. No presentations February

    3. March presentations (topic focussed presentations)
    - First presentation: 10 steps to getting started as an ez pub dev (Jon Henry)
    - Mobile detection and redirection will be saved for another time
    - Joe Kepley will come up with a second presentation

    4. New name for topic-focused presentations

      Part 3 of 4 (I mis-calculated above!):

      6. Need to raise the marketing of the meetup presentations
      - we have something good but we need to market it better
      - maybe we can get it in other calendars (eZ Systems, CMS wire, etc)
      - get Maud to add these events to share.ez.no
      - social networking
      - advertising from our own websites
      - target some other sectors than devs (new clients, analysts, potential partners)
      - Add more people to the Meetup (should be focal point), drive people to Google Hangout Events, other pieces, as there are more elements to draw people in
      - Joe at Granite Horizon to quarterback this effort: they will tap people who are going to execute individual steps

      7. Next step on topic-focused presentations: identify different non-technical audience for focus of April meetings

      Part 4 of 4:

      8. Florida Meetup general status
      - Facility Booked, near RSW airport
      - Basic, Advance Training all set to go
      - Conference all set
      - Jon is currently working on the update training
      - Schedule is officially set
      - Hotel: http://www.marriott.c...­
      - 10 rooms needed for discount ($189/night)
      - We are up to 10 people

      9. Florida Unconference day call
      - the format for the unconference will follow the model used at Cologne: a few prepared presentations followed by presentations offered by the attendees and selected by polling
      - the call on Monday: If there is stuff we really want to hear from eZ or others, or any topics we want to present

    Note: eZ folks Dylan and Roland are unavailable for this call. This will therefore probably be a shorter call than usual. We will schedule another call next week (call time TBD; perhaps Monday) to accommodate participation of eZ Systems and to discuss the Florida gathering in February in more detail.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
