    I am temporarily in the area as journalist-in-residence at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCSB. This Meetup group seems like the sort of group that might be interested in a new science cafe that I have organized for KITP and that could be another opportunity to meet like minded entrepreneurs. Sorry if I am overstepping protocol here. Info for the April 2 science cafe event is here:

    I would appreciate advice on how to reach the local business, tech and entrepreneurial communities to let them know about this new series for SB's forward-looking communities.

    Kyle - I will be attending so can you update my RSVP please? Meetup site asks me to pay when I try to reply without any option to indicate my annual membership, hence no fees :-) Thanks.
