Somehow I cannot see enough people on #dotgnu ..... Well we may
use this dotgnu-newbies when we crowd out the main channel.

Ok these three would do enough ... we actually need developers *and*
users to come forward... The original meeting was developer-specific
,at least in purpose... unlike this proposal (If I read it right)...

We've gotta learn "How to Hype" .... from a project we're all familiar
with (I'll give you 3 guesses)....

You're not alone in that opinion.... (sic)

> spawn off different channels for the meet-a-thon:

Would fork interest .... I believe a chaotic meeting would do good 
as far as I'm concerned . And the timezones of the developers will
control the topic to some extent (from last experience)... No sense
in splitting interest .... IMO DotGNU is a single entity as far as 
this meeting is concerned . 

One of the reasons this meeting is being planned so early is to get
maximum feedback ..... And I would like anyone and everyone to put
his $0.02 into the jingling bag...... 

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
