Four of us met at Nerdbooks last Saturday and had a good discussion on Sketching User Experiences. We had an interesting variety of industry experience there: two of us were IA, one a lighting console designer, and one a voice interaction designer.

We decided going forward that we'd:
- Meet every other month due to busy schedules and reading loads.
- Alternate meetings on Saturdays versus Wednesdays so the maximum number of folks could attend.
- Try to move locations around, again, to try and get the most number of folks.

We picked two books and two dates.
