Good question.  I hope this will end up different, as the pub lets us
talk about whatever we feel like in an informal, unstructured way.
There's no agenda and we don't stop the conversation from going off in
unrelated directions.

What I've read about this idea, and consequently what I propose,
involves several sessions based around specific topics.  I'm not sure
whether we should constrain how long sessions last for or let them
last until people get bored, but I imagine each session will have
someone chairing it, guiding the discussion.  Some sessions might
involve scribbling down ideas, some might involve writing code, and
some will involve other things that haven't occurred to me.

I expect we'll come up with our own lists off interesting topics
beforehand, and if enough people want a session on a given topic, they
will make it happen.

Does anyone else have ideas how this might work?  I expect we'll form
better plans collectively than I will on my own.
