Fantastic and scary at the same time! :) I know as I have been actively
involved with the leadership of numerous user groups in Southern

part is finding people for a topic. The hard part is figuring out topics
people want speakers on. :)

I would be willing to present in February on using geospatial data in
Postgresql (including data loading and client tools) if anyone is
interested in that?

Yes. That would be incredibly cool! More and more groups I am involved
with have been taking this approach lately with great success.

I am ok with Friday nights but not opposed to other nights. Just be
aware of potentially conflicting group meetings. See

I think Wednesday is pretty safe with no conflicts.
