   responding on the list is generally better--
who knows who'll get an idea and share it if

   jj's suggestion for a show of hands has merit, 
but i think the experiment should be run over 
several meetings (i.e. get feedback for several 
newbie nugget presentations) before drawing a 

   how might a newbie nugget component affect 
our having a newbie night? 

   what about presenting the newbie nugget 
feature as likely but not definitely in all 
meetings so's to leave flexibility for talks 
that require the entire time?
