I think that is a great idea and Apple is a great location.  Here is 
what I suggest.  On the months that meetings are in Oakland - say a week 
later, so that the intense folks can do both if they really want - we 
hold a local meeting.  We willl have to find our own speakers from a 
local pool - and/or we can invite the same speakers that appeared in 
Oakland.  Between us we can probably wake up a few local speakers from 
places down here.
