Heather, Alaia, Linda - Thanks again for coming out. I know it's always a bit of a hassle to get in your car and go somewhere, but I'm really pleased with the way this first event went. Looking forward to the next one, and hope you are, too!
Rick - Hey, it happens. The idea is for these to become an ongoing thing, and also (LOOK, MA--FULL TRANSPARENCY!) to encourage other people to start setting up their own events. Pop over to the Seattle network for a taste of how it can work. They've got events going every day of the week--multiple events, with all kinds of focuses or lack thereof!
I'm guessing it'll be pretty hard to recap specifically what people took away, since there were so many conversations going over the course of the evening. But if anyone writes about it on a blog or something, please post back here on the thread to let us know!
