The SEMIBug folks do a similar "what are you wrestling with" segment at
the end of their meetings. The funny part is they did not stream that
part of the meeting with the simple explanation " If you want to know,
show up!" Not a bad way to handle it. And it keeps the advice given the
unvarnished truth rather than what you would say with "The Internet"
looking over your shoulder. Notes were indeed taken and will be edited
down for public consumption. We have meetings for July, Aug, and
possibly even Sept lined up. Write-ups to follow in the days to come.
