Quick update here on our Think Tank in Tampa, Florida, USA:
- 53 members in our Meetup Group
- 14 attended (8 men, 6 women) our first event this past Thursday, July 30.
- Tasked with trying the Social Meeting template.
- Used the survey included in the Think Tank kit for feedback.
- Best: meeting new people, Worst: setting was too noisy.
- We are planning our next meeting to be held at the Tampa Hackerspace. They've agreed to partner with us for meeting space and (non-financial) support. We believe this move will facilitate stability and longevity necessary for building a core group.
- From the survey, interests in descending order: education, big data/energy, healthcare/medicine/environment
- Next meeting will focus on Adult Literacy.
That's it for now from Tampa!
