So what day will it be on?
> == INTERESTING PROJECTS ==
> Name some interesting projects you're working on!
> Zed Shaw posted a slightly interesting article about user groups,
> meetups, hackerspaces, social clubs, etc:
> He says,
> I tried a few user groups, but there's barely anyone doing
> anything truly interesting. I really do enjoy the people who take
> the time to go to a user group for their favorite tech, but at the
> same time I feel like they're just there to escape their jobs.
> That's sad because I run into people who say, "(sigh) I have to do
> Rails", even at the Python groups. The Python group has had two
> months of meetings about fucking performance tuning. I love those
> guys, but holy baby jesus can we just move off of cython already?
> I hear reports that even the iPhone and Cocoa user group is lame.
> I mean, that group should be going ape shit right now.
> Projects...someone must be doing something interesting! Phd work, grad
> work, web work, desktop work, work work? Tell us more, maybe even
> present something :D
> Has anyone worked with Smalltalk or C#? What are they like compared to
> Common Lisp and Scheme?
> == NEXT MEETUP ==
> Also, we need to decide the next meetup date. I'm thinking September
> 11th or 18th. They're all Thursdays of course, starting at 6pm, 99%
> chance of being at the LinuxCaffe.
> There's a fine Lisp meetup calendar here (in case you're in another
> If Brian C. is still up for it, he could present at the next meetup,
> depending on if he's available for either of the days?
