    I hadn't considered any structure to this meetup when I posted it, I just thought it would be relevant to folks here. But since Meetup is ultimately about people not events, should we organize a bit? I know Garth and Elaine, but I haven't met anyone else on the list. I'd be interested in hearing what others are doing or planning.

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.
