Working from home can be isolating. Sometimes we need the energy of being with other people who are working. Also it helps to have a support group to discuss about challenges we face working remotely.
I just took over this meetup as 'meetup' indicated that if no one takes over in a week it will be closed. We have a good number of folks signed up here. I am a remote consultant ; always looking for ways to be with working people. Any ideas/suggestions/initiatives to meet somewhere , or do things that will help us increase productivity , pl feel free to post and initiate. We will try this meetup for the next 6 months or so and see where this takes us.
