Since YAPC::NA, it's actually been my intention to try and restart 
Cincinnati.pm again. I've just not gotten around to finalizing all the 
details.  After I got this, I decided that it was probably time to 
finish.  So, for everyone interested, we at Scenario Learning will host 
Cincinnati.pm next Thursday. We have invited Henry Van Styn to talk 
about RapidApp and we will be provide food for the event.

The details:

  * Who: Henry Van Styn, IntelliTree Solutions
  * What: RapidApp: Turnkey ajaxy webapps (
    https://github.com/vanstyn/RapidApp )
  * When: Thursday, August 1st, 6:00pm
  * Where: Scenario Learning: 7434 Montgomery Road

We hope to see you there. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
