So, perhaps we should try to get an idea of who would go to each of
various options for face to face meetings and do that off list so
that. Should that be added to the wiki set up by Thomas?
I do think there is a good reason to meet face to face, especially
early on in trying get this sort of thing going. There are certain
kinds of things that just work better that way.
The 3 categories seem to be:
1) meet at the AAS
2) meet at CFA or STScI in the fall
3) meet at scipy
Sooner would be better, but I'm afraid it is too late for scipy.
I'd rather not wait for the next AAS.
The advantage of 2 is that there are no distractions of another
meeting or conference to deal with, the meeting would be dedicated to
the effort entirely (and it minimizes the travel costs for one of the
two larger organizations). Obviously I'm favoring the second option.
But it would be good to see who could make each of these.
