i'm with aahz tho a bit more so.
beware of ambitions: they tend to stir groups
up with lots of tedious meetings and email (like
what this thread may become) and end up with
nothing more done than the talking, or worse:
some elaborate starts then bitter disappointment
when things fall apart.
if we can just have meetings and an email
list, that's a lot (further ambitions threaten what
we've got). let's keep it (by keeping it simple).
no officers, no roles, just simple email list
management and getting speakers for meetings.
there, i've said it three times.
