That was great. This is definitely stuff I'm learning more about.
Any other area you see the HN crowd lacking in?
I will be there!
I think I will be able to attend this one!
Can't wait to meet everyone tomorrow! Hopefully everyone is still planning on attending.
I also know a couple of people that aren't frequenters of LW that will likely attend.
Sounds good to me!
So it looks like we have enough interest to have a meetup, even before Alicorn/AdeleneDawner get their new place setup. So lets recommend some times/places and go from there.
mutterc mentioned Brier Creek. As he mentioned it is centrally located and has some good spots for meetups. Probably a good area for this first meetup. Alicorn mentioned some venues near her that could be used as well. Both of these seem like good ideas to me.
Scheduling for me: As I said in the original post, it is easier for me to attend during the week, but given 2 weeks advance notice I could meet up on the weekend as well.

I'll probably pick this book up on your suggestion.
Having a meetup here would be great. I know a couple people that would attend, but I'm not too sure of the overall readership here.
Raleigh, what about you?

I am very interested in the topics discussed here and have recently decided to take a more active role in the community as well as really learning the existing material.
A little about me personally. I'm a 23, male, computer programmer ('software engineer') that has essentially slacked off his entire life. I ha... (read more)
Thanks for those. Great thoughts for those trying to find some way to help out.
