March Meetup - Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

UPDATE: I consulted with our other organizer Katie and we decided to leave the meetup at Austin Java.

-----

"Quiet" won our poll by one vote, so it will be our book for March!

Austin Java has parking on both sides of the building as well as street parking further up Parkway. There's a full food menu in addition to coffee, beer, and wine.

Since the vote was so close, we might discuss reading "Packing for Mars" as our book for April. I'd also love to get other book ideas and venue suggestions when we meet.

Until then, happy reading!

    I enjoyed it very much, though it was a bit hard to hear with the traffic and music loudspeaker right behind me. I understand, though, considering the great response to this meetup.

    We had a great turnout tonight and I thought the discussion was a lot of fun. I apologize for the noise level--I'll be finding a private room for next time so we can hear each other better.

    Here's a link to Susan Cain's TED talk that was discussed tonight: http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html

    I'll be posting the April meetup soon and a poll for the May book. Hope to see everyone next month!

    I am very sorry for the late notice but have an unexpected conflict. Next time.

    This guy was just on the Daily Show. Looks like a fun non-fiction book: http://www.amazon.com/Salt-Sugar-Fat-Giants-Hooked/dp/1400069807

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow! If you're not able to make it, please update your RSVP on the site. Thanks to the folks who already have--it makes it a lot easier to save seats if I know how many are coming. I'll have a little sign to make the group easier to find, so just look for the dork with the placard. :)

    Has everyone gotten to the part where she asks 20 questions and you give a true/false answer to determine how introverted you are? If so, how many "trues" did folks have? (I had 12.)

    I finished the book a couple days ago. Really interesting. Learned a couple things about myself, too. Can't wait for the discussion.
