I still think it is worth using meetup despite the annoyances I have with
it. I used to be adamently opposed.

For a mild tangent, my grant request to the PSF to cover meetup organizer
fees last year was accepted, and they asked if they could provide any other
assistance. I mentioned that it would be nice to have someone write up a
system to automatically sync meetup data with our data. I don't have a
block of time for this, so I cannot do it. Basically, I'd like someone to
write up a script that could use the meetup.com api to fetch RSVP data so
that it can be frobbed and pushed to chipy.org's api. This presuppose that
there is a chipy.org api, so if that doesn't exist yet, I'd want to someone
to create that as well. The PSF doesn't usually provide that type of
assistance but I figured it didn't hurt to ask.

My preference would be to have more than one person in contact with a host
so that you are not the single point of failure in the communication
stream. I understand that we wouldn't want to bombard them with a lot of
traffic from the entire list, but having 2 or 3 people would be helpful and
would promote transparency.
