Given the votes so far CGI is the winner. Unless there's a big
outpouring for something else, let's do it.
A few more details:
- Do we want to do this at the meeting, in lieu of our other meeting
activities (a presentation)? Seems there is support for this idea.
- It's probably a good idea to have a pumpking. Volunteers? I'll be
last resort but I really am not super-familiar with CGI. Or since
CGI is so big, we could have a few pumpkings for different
sections. Thoughts on how to divide it up, what to tackle first,
- The book reading groups I've known work like this: beforehand you
decide what book/chapters to read, and then you read them before
the meeting. The moderator usually brings a few questions/comments
to get started, and then off you go. Do we want to do it like that
or some other way?
Thanks for caring,
