April Meetup #2

Hey everybody, we're finally able to use our new regular meeting place (well, one of the two places)- the meeting room at the recently reopened Howson Branch Library. They did a really great job renovating the place, and the meeting room is particularly nice, with a built-in video projector. So I don't have to bring one with me to plug in my laptop.

Also, this meeting cements our new monthly schedule, which has changed to first and third Wednesdays, instead of second and fourth Wednesdays like we were in March. (Although we will be having another joint meetup with the Flash group downtown next week).

So at this meeting, we'll return to the format we used last year when we met at the Khabele School: We'll do the job club first for about 45 minutes, then we'll have a 15-minute break where we can network and talk with each other on our own, and then the last hour we'll have our program. The program this week will be one of the SXSW podcasts that we discussed at our meeting back in March- "Social Business by Design".

Looking forward to seeing you guys there!

    The meeting went pretty well. The new projector system was nice, but the lighting wasn't ideal for the screen. Our discussion during job club was pretty far ranging, so we didn't get a whole lot done there except to talk about the local Adobe and national Photoshop groups. We listened to most of the podcast and discussed it as we went along- we did learn from it, but it was more oriented towards people in larger corporate environments, less so people who are working for themselves.

    Dennis asked: "Can you also plug into an audio system?"

    I don't believe they have audio, although you would think that they would cover that as well if they cover the video projection side. But it's no problem for me to bring powered speakers, they get plenty loud going straight from my laptop.
