Hey folks!
So I realized a good use of this forum is to ask -- TOPICS?
What would you like to have a workshop on? Or chat with others about? And any suggestions on venues in the city? (We can probably use the Hacker Dojo or Palm HQ in the Sunnyvale/M.View area) We've done a few socials, but a place where we can have a surface to project onto would be ideal.

Aside: for other places to connect, incase anyone missed it: there's twitter, Facebook and Meetup. The meetup grp seems to be the most popular of these so far, so expect updates on new meets to come there first.
HTH!

We'd love to have more meetups in the city, but it's hard to find a venue.
Any suggestions? Ideally: Free, w/ good wifi, and a place to project.
A place that sells food would probably be a good thing, but for that it's more on what you guys want.. a place where you can order food at, or a place we can bring/order food into?
Since the next meet is looking to be a social more in the style of moral support for Palm employees, the consensus amongst the organizing group was that it should be closer to Palm HQ, so thinking Hacker Dojo right now..
Any thoughts about topics, venues, etc, are welcomed in this thread!

Alright, next meetup Planned!
What: A social time! Gather and chat, maybe some informal demos (anyone got an elmo?) and whatnot..
WHEN: Friday, September 30th @ 7pm
WHERE: Firehouse Grill & Brewery 111 S. Murphy Ave Sunnyvale, CA
WHO: Everyone who cares at all about Palm/webOS, and especially current+former employees (who I hope we'll buy drinks for!)
Why: Toast to the next chapter!

Please RSVP if you can so we can make sure the room is setup with enough tables+chairs beforehand! But feel free to just drop in and invite as many as you want! You can RSVP here, or w/ a tweet, but preferably on FB, or meetup.
Cool, look forward to seeing all your shining faces.

no worries, _everyone_ is invited, we're a new group and this is only our second official meetup, so there's plenty of unknown faces. Either way, I know you now! ;-)
I'm technically the ambassador and promise you I won't know everyone there.. Lmk if that helps or if you have other apprehensions/concerns!
who knows, maybe someone will have an answer to your TP prob?

@Marketpantry: I think part of the point is to meet people. I've never been to an event, but I'm planning to go this time. I put in an RSVP on FB.

First update, then a reply..

SO! After the successful September Social (Pre3 Launch Party? , it's time for the October social!

WHAT: Dinner w/ webOS Internals founder Rod Whitby!
WHERE: Firehouse Grill
WHEN: 10/12/11 @ 7p
WHY: To meet Rod, discuss the webOS love, all else, OR! have a frankenpre'ing done (make your Sprint Pre- a Sprint Pre2!). If you want this, PLEASE let us (or fidelitysyndrome specifically) know so that we can be ready for ya!

Please RSVP on meetup.com or facebook so we know how many tables+chairs to have setup!

Also, if folks can retweet this status that'd be great!

PS: If you have access to a mifi and can bring it that'd be _GREATLY_ helpful! The venue's wifi was a little slammed when we were there last..

We haven't had a social in sf since the Veer release party, but if we can get some good venue suggestions (preferably tech-friendly venues, even for socials as having a loud env or poor wifi sucks we can probably do a SF social in the next month!

It's that time of the month again!

After a _tremendously_ successful October social in Sunnyvale (were there really 9 Frankenpres done and over 30 in attendance?!)..
it's coming back to the city! (where it all began? kinda.. So hopefully marketpantry and others who couldn't make the south bay ones will be able to join us this time!

WHAT: A meet, a greet, a social to see you!
WHEN: 11/18/11 at 7pm
WHERE: Gott's Roadside Tray Gourmet
1 Ferry Bldg, San Francisco, CA (Across from Occupy SF?)

RSVP on Facebook (and like us too so we can get our own URL!) or meetup.

If you have a mifi, please bring it! The venue is wifi-less.

Hope that answers all your q's folks! Since new folks seem to follow posts in this forum, i'll do my darnedest to keep posting updates in here

Most of the organizers don't know SF venues very well, so if you have a better suggestion for next time, with wifi(!) and maybe a projector, etc, spread the word!

Looking forward to a meetup back in San Francisco!! I'll be there and I will have a BNIB AZERTY Pre 3 for sale if anyone is interested. I bought it when they were first released and by the time I actually received it I got an AT&T Pre 3 so it hasn't been turned on. PM me if you're interested!

See you all there,

Paul

What's a mifi? Sounds like something a fruit company would try to kill? LOL

I'm gonna be there next week, but I better win something this time, or it's the last meet-up I go to....
OK, I'll settle for a shirt, sticker, beer....
Oh never mind, I just wanna hang with fellow cool people that support a cool product line.

It's that time of the year, time for presents, and this time..
we get webOS! Sweet

So let's have a holiday celebration folks!

All the same details as last time, in the Ferry building in San Francisco, across from JHP (Site of #occupySF), but looks like we shouldn't have the need to #occupyPalm in the near future with this great Open Sourcing news. So join us!

WHEN: Friday, December 16'11 @ 7:00 PM
WHERE: Gott's Roadside Tray Gourmet, 1 Ferry Bldg, San Francisco, CA
WHY: Because it's Awesome!

RSVP on meetup.com, faceBook, or just tweet us @svpug, whatever's clever!

And a mifi would still be useful, but no, it's not the target of a fruit company

In San Francisco, parties are common on New Year's Eve (SF New Years Eve). Fireworks are very popular, both with individuals and large municipal displays. Every year San Francisco hosts one of the largest New Year's Eve celebrations in all of USA, attended by over one million people. The focal point is the San Francisco Bay area, where midnight fireworks are centered. San Francisco toasts the New Year with a glass of wine (SF sparkling wine) or squash.

I think that's the most elaborate spam I've ever seen??
In actual news, starting to plan the may meetup now. What do you guys want to talk about? Or have a workshop in?
And is there interest in having it in the east bay?

Sorry I've been traveling a bit so haven't posted even though there's been meetups since my last msg! (Hope folks are following on meetup.com, that seems the central point for most?)
Open webOS news, LunaCE, the carrier's crazy share plans (is the Pre's hotspot still free for new customers??), whatever you want to talk about, we must!
Any technical topics folks want to discuss, or to have a lesson/workshop on? Or help desired? Feel free to name it all here, or we can just impromptu when we get together.
Speaking of getting together.. Is there a preference for a certain day of the week?? (Tuesdays? Weekends?) Feel free to speak or tweet (to @svpug) your thoughts/views/opinions, hopes for giveaways.. whatever
