Thoughts on first mi4n6 meeting

First I would like to thank everyone who came out to our first meeting.  It was amazing to see all the people that showed up and packed the room we had.  I would also like to thank everyone that helped spread the word about mi4n6.  Whether it was via twitter, work conversations, school, you guys definitely got the word out to the community.

We have had a number of people already show an interest in presenting.  My current method of scheduling these presentations is "person asks -> I say cool -> I try and remember what slot I have open -> I make a mental note -> I forget".  This process does not scale well, so here is what I will ask in the future if you are interested in speaking.

1. Send an email to stating that you would like to give a talk
2. In the email include an abstract of the presentation (so I can post it on this blog)
3. I will confirm by email with the earliest date I have available

I am also asking that if you have any suggestions about how we can better these monthly meetings to please let me know.

There were also a number of people that showed an interest in the challenge I was using as part of my presentation.  If you would like to give it a go, you can find it here:

Change of location for first meeting

FYI:  I will be changing the location of the first mi4n6 meeting.  It will be held at the EMU Livonia campus instead of Ypsilanti.  I'm hoping this will make it easier for people with busy schedules to be able to attend this meeting.

The meeting location will be:

EMU Livonia
38777 W 6 Mile Rd # 400 
Livonia, MI
