    Any interest in a national/global meetup?

    We tried this several years ago at a single place, resulted in two older mods eventually getting married and few were able to attend but I wonder with new technology (skype,handgouts) we try something again but bring it to the next level:

    1. Several areas around the US, Europe and Australia set to meetup at a specific time.
    2. Skype or Handgouts during the event.
    3. Drink, discuss, smoke cigars and have a glorious time.
    4. Folks that are unable to physically attend can do so virtually.

    This is an unscientific poll and so replies will get more attention.

    No dates yet.. still just an idea.. does this interest you?

    It was a great idea then and an even greater one now for all the reasons you listed. I would be interested for sure.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I would love to. The Australian one can be held in Serenity's bedroom.

    Since I'm in Germany I'd be down for something virtual.

    I'd be interested.

    Interest. Due to visa issues I am more inclined to be a host. Going virtual is not worth my anonymity but face to face is.

    Sounds like it would be great fun for a lot of people. Alas, I am Skype-less, so wouldn't be able to participate. Still, it could be a great party for those who could!
