Thanks to you who voted in the day of the week poll. That's very helpful information, and incidentally, Monday, the day we used to hold the meetups ended up very nearly the least-preferred. So, hopefully more of you will be able to attend more often!
It looks like Thursday is the winner, followed closely by Wednesday and Tuesday. Friday was the least favorite (of course) and Monday the second least. Now I'd like to try and pin down the part of the month, so I've opened a new poll asking for which Thursday of the month you'd prefer to meet:http://www.meetup.com/mysql-silicon-valley/polls/241835/
If I could ask you all to take a quick moment to vote on that, I can schedule the first few meetups and start getting together topics and speakers. (And of course, if you're unhappy about the day-of-week selection, feel free to still vote on day of the week here: http://www.meetup.com/mysql-silicon-valley/polls/241647/
