Just a quick note.

Eric gave a great presentation.  The space was packed.  It was our
biggest meeting in a long time.  Great discussion, a bunch of new
people.  And importantly, a lot of people hung out afterwards.

Feedback on the space appreciated.

Also, Digital Ocean officially announced FreeBSD as a service today.

Neal Shrader, the DO developer, was at the meeting last night.

He is also speaking next Tuesday on the process, in addition to someone
from the FreeBSD end.  I saw Neal's presentation outline, and it will be
a technical talk, covering the design and implementation.  We'll
announce officially in the next day or so.

I think it's a big deal.  There was actually a strong public push to
support FreeBSD, and while many of us are 'bare-metal' users and
advocates, VM services of all sorts and sizes end up being the 'gateway
drug' for a lot of people who want to play with an OS on the live internet.
