That did come up at last night's meeting.  It sounds like more 
lightning-talks and round-tables (and generally more audience 
participation oriented meetings) are pretty desirable.

I too would like to see more code review activity at the meetings.  I'm 
thinking that this can be tricky, especially if there is supposed to be 
a speaker or leader.  Mostly, things tend to slow down quite a bit if 
whoever is in charge of keeping things exciting has to stop and type

that May's meeting will be a "client/boss requirements-gathering / 
mind-changing war stories" lightning/round-table with maybe some agile 
techniques discussion thrown in.
