Hi All-<br><br>I want to thank Garance and Jesse for coming out this evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting and the conversation. <br><br>Having the meeting at the East Greenbush Panera, however, was a bit like meeing in a hospital cafeteria, except that the pages were regarding sandwiches instead of doctors.... IOW it was a rather noisy environment. As much as I enjoyed saving the extra 30 minutes round trip, I have to admit that the Latham Farms location is much nicer.
<br><br>I would still prefer to have a meeting environment that is truly suited to our purpose, but in its absence, I would have to vote for a return to Latham....<br><br>This assumes that people are unwilling to come out to Valatie... because I am certain that I could get use of the school complete with a lab and projector.... heck I could get access to a full sized movie screen and a _very_ large LCD projector for presentations if there were a need. The down side is that it's about a 30 minute drive east from Albany.
<br><br>In any event that is entirely up to the group, not me. (Patrick, you are the furthest out, and I don't know how this would work for you...) It also occured to me that we might consider switching to weeknight meetings if it would promote better attendance.
<br><br>Anyhow these are just some random thoughts. Let me know what you think. Also, it would be cool to have a plan for next month... as I am sure that we could get better attendance by giving more than 1 or 2 days notice for a meeting :)
<br><br><br>Well, let me know....<br><br><br>-Jonathan<br>
