I agree, and I'd actually go so far as to produce a calendar
in advance for the next year to show some sort of commitment:
I suggest cycling round the first Tue, Wed, Thu of each month
and creating a Google Calendar or some equivalent thing. Or
at least, blogging a list of dates!

Then all we have to do is decide how to fill in the gaps!

I'm actually quite keen on the idea of having a few speakers in
quick succession with a sort of questions-panel at the end. (I
forget who mentioned that idea: Peter?) But I'm happy with anything.
