By my simple maths, that leaves just me, you and, possibly, Paul, to get them to speak up!
BTW, how many people make for quorum?
Thus, how many people do we need, to achieve positive progress, reinforcement, and synergy?
If there is and, if there’s going to be, a Silicon Canal, it has to be an actual progressive movement, and not just a phrase.
For my part, I should look beyond this site, in order to find Midlands minds of similar interest.
Andy - I’m going to take your response as a sign of interest but, I need to establish a base of interest, before I can promote the idea, elsewhere.
I will let the idea ruminate, and see if some likes reflect the shared need, that I suspect is out there.
While I have my own ideas, I would like a meetup in which the attendees set the agenda. Perhaps reflecting more local requirements, and local employers. Compared to London, that might/should mean more consideration of engineering and manufacturing problems, and solutions.
Overall, synergy is the thing - lethargy helped nobody!
