    Is there any prospect of the meetings being chronologically staggered,
instead of being held on the same weekend?  I'd give a lot (i.e., pay out
of my own pocket) to be able to physically attend both the West and East
Coast meetings: but if they keep being held simultaneously, that's going
to remain a daydream.  I may be the only person who cares, but, then
again, maybe I'm not.

    Having the meetings put on the Net is an excellent idea, but there's
something mentally catalytic about arguing face-to-face over beer that is
hard to replace cybernetically.  :)
