Re: [baclojure] meeting ideas, etc.

Thanx Rich, we have a list of requested topics that folks have voted on - and I posted that to the list so you can find it in the archives. I was exaggerating a little when I said "lack of suggestions" but I would like more feedback from the membership! :)

Sanjeev volunteered for April I believe covering deployments, based on production usage. 

I said if no one volunteers to cover one of the other popular topics, I could talk about Clojure in production, as we're doing at World Singles, for March, but I'm happy for anyone to volunteer to talk on any topic that folks have requested!

Definitely happy for you to take the lead on any of the requested topics since I've been pretty slammed and would much prefer someone else speak in March! :)

Thank you!
