Really?  It's not known who dun it?  I guess it's spilt milk and it
doesn't matter.  Maybe a wiki is a good idea so at least we'd know who
did things.  It's a cool idea someone had.

If there's no agenda, please post that there's no agenda so that
people don't get disappointed.

I am interested in hearing the talk on software development that JJ
proposes to give and I too expect that it would provide a great
jumping off place for discussion.  I hope it happens.

I agree that talking about a program about IDE's sounds pretty tedious
and I'd rather skip it, even though I'd be part of the real program.

I'd like to do an organizing meeting to see if this square peg can
find a comfortable way to help.  However, I'd rather it not be
attached to eating out.  But, I do think Dennis' suggestion was clever
and attractive and I'd do it even if it isn't my preference.

I very much appreciate that Walter Vannini took the time to help us.
Clearly we need a volunteer with a title like "Speaker Coordinator",
or maybe two of them, one for each meeting site.
