Demian, these are great ideas. In my experience, your suggested format 
works well. It helps introduce people to a topic, and provides a common 
basis for a meaningful sharing of ideas. So let's get our local 
luminaries, knowledgeable people, and others to volunteer!

However, based on feedback from other people, I think the most important 
thing for us is to set a recurring date, time, and place. (See my 
previous email to Evelyn, where I follow her suggestion of a 2nd Tuesday 
instead - hopefully this works better for other people too.)

This way, even if we don't have a volunteer to speak for a given night, 
we can still meet and keep our momentum as a group.

Any other thoughts on location and timing preferences?

- Jim
