RE: [webdesign-390] Seattle Web Design Meetup--I need your thoughts about our group.

Hi. thanks for reaching out, Steve, and picking up the group. To answer your specific questions from my perspective, see the following:
 
Where would you like to meet?  One fixed downtown or Eastside location? Move locations as appropriate? Other?  Do you have a specific recommendation?  Are drinkables important to you, coffee, beer?
TIM: The closer to Pioneer Square the better for me, at least for now. I think a place with a room we can secure -- for free, of course -- is optimimal, and having that free room in a bar with beer/drinks/food is even better.
 
Do you want a formal presentation with discussion to follow or just open discussion of current projects and work-in-progress or an opportunity to ask questions?  What are three topics that would be of interest to you if someone could make a presentation?  Are you willing to be a presenter of some topic(s) related to web design?
TIM: I think a mix of the two would be ideal to encourage some structure to our discussions while, at times, allowing us to be more informal and just talk about what we're seeing in our worlds. For me, I find completely unstructured meetups tend to fail pretty quickly and I get a lot more out of ones that at least have an informal but directed presentation at least every two meetings or so. As for subjects, may I suggest: designing / ux for mobile platforms (iOS, WebOS, etc ...), HTML5 + CSS3, Information Architecture: Web vs. Mobile, "So, You're A 'Designer.' What does that mean, anymore?" and others ...
 
Do you want to join me as an assistant coordinator?  What role would you like?
No, thanks :-)
 
I hope the above is helpful, and I look forward to meeting up with the rest of the group soon.

I have just started as the coordinator of Seattle Web Design Meetup.  Please consider the following and let me know your opinions:
 
Where would you like to meet?  One fixed downtown or Eastside location? Move locations as appropriate? Other?  Do you have a specific recommendation?  Are drinkables important to you, coffee, beer?
