Thanks Matthew for the offer.  I think that it is important to have a
diversity of meeting locations since the general LA area is rather
large and can be difficult for some to make the meetings if they
always have to fight with long commutes.

I would like to hear more about what you have in mind.  I think that
having sharing ideas, or getting some "hands on" experience would be a
great idea.  If we decide to do this, I would like to really talk it
up, so that everyone that attends can be prepared to participate.

I appreciate the offer, this would really add a lot to the groups experience.

I am not expecting to get a speaker.  So far with my limited
experience with speakers, I am seeing that volunteers like to have
about 8 weeks to develop a presentation.   If no one volinteered, I
was going to throw something together for a presentation.  But having
a group session would really be a great thing to do instead.
