Re: Greater Los Angeles Region - Forming a Group
I'd like to differ very slightly with you: I think face-to-face meetings are absolutely essential. There's just something about contact in the real world, with music, food, coffee, etc. that makes a huge difference in peoples expectations of - and commitments to - one another. If we could get people together just once it would be enormous. Coffee anyone? How about finding something near Union Station? All rail leads there, so why not use it as a sort of center point?
P.S. - My assumption is that we are discussing greater L.A., as opposed to SoCal, but I'm hoping the bulk of us don't live in Riverside, etc.... not to dump on our desert cousins, but logistically it would make matters more difficult (which was, I imagine, Mike's main point).
