Carrboro is certainly not convenient for me - it's about 90 miles
round trip for me. That said, it's the location which has
consistently had the biggest turnout - bigger than when we'd met at
Panera in Brier Creek, bigger than when we'd met at iContact, and
bigger than when we'd met at Bronto. The level of promotion didn't
change for any location.
I'm certainly open to having meetings in other locations, but we've
*had* them in other locations, and have had low/no turnout.
Suggestions are always welcomed, but *attendance* is welcomed as well.
re: REST/SOAP - everyone's got their views on things, and they both
have their place. I think it was more of a friendly back and forth
than an argument IIRC.
