Hi all
 up on Alan's idea, can I suggest something like a shared spreadsheet 
for talk suggestions? It's so much easier to converge on a schedule when
 we have a common view. I've started the ball rolling, but I'm happy to 
add more. If everyone adds an item or two we'll have an agenda in no 
time. I can do Grails for this month if really
 necessary, but I have a deadline or two, so it'll be better in a future

Do feel free to shoot me if you think this is a totally stupid idea
All the bestStuart

If we were to have her this month then how many people would be interested in attending? I would show up for that. If there are more than 6 people then we should get her booked. If that doesn't work we could have a YAPC::NA debrief this month and get Michelle in in July.

Maybe we can use Damian's early August talk as our late late July event.

If Fulko's away in September then we can use a stand-in emcee, I'll volunteer needed and if nobody else does.

That looks to me like we have three out of the next 4 months covered, we just need to get a talk together for the "real" August meeting.

Can anyone interested in hearing Michelle please send something to the list so we can get a virtual show of hands?

Can Alan or Stuart re-post a link to Stuart's spreadsheet so it is easier for people to look at it?
