You can make a new flyer here if you'd like:

Resolution with the new logo still isn't perfect but it's a little better :-/

I tried sending a message with a suggestion to the list address
earlier today and thought that maybe it's set to be moderated, but now
I'm realizing I sent it with a different "from" address than what I
have registered with Meetup so that's probably why it didn't go
through. I'll just include it here. Jason's Siam suggestion sounds
good too.

Hey folks,

While we're waiting to hear Jason's thoughts on where and when and
what to talk about, does anyone else have ideas or input?

I think we'd ideally want a private space with a projector available
for presentations eventually, but I'm sure we could make do with a few
casual meet-and-greet gatherings to start with, and maybe some
informal Barcamp-style lightning talks, huddling around laptops if
there are only a few of us. Just to meet and gauge people's interests,
discuss ideal meeting time and place, etc.

I'd propose Bug & Bee Silom as an option:

It's been my office on several occasions while living here -- it's
fairly centrally located, spacious, has free wifi, is open 24 hours,
has good coffee and fruit smoothies and decent food, and there are
often groups of students studying there so they're used to that sort
of thing. The location should provide a range of options for dinner
before meeting or watering holes if folks want to grab a beer
afterward.

Just something that came to my mind as a good option -- anyone have
others? Ideas for talks you might like to give or hear in the future?
Meetup has a new-ish Ideas feature:
