Not a big success, but Joe, Rich and I are still planning to meet at Pedro's Wed evening. Joe is normally in So Cal, so this is a good reason to continue with this one. Anyone else is still welcome to join.

Hopefully, more SF Bay area folks can get together at some future time.

Joe Gayo, Rich Feldman and I did get together for dinner Wed. evening. Hmm, we probably should have taken a pic, but didn't.

It was great to see each other and chat. A small meeting, Richard, but at least some connection on the west coast at last.

I was very impressed with things Joe had to share. Not only did he build a successful fusor in less than two months, he had a well thought novel approach and has done lots of research and has interesting ideas about the physics. (Actually, much of it beyond my current level of real understanding.)

I think he should be a welcome contributor here. Hope he can find time to share more ideas with us.

Joe lives in Los Angeles area and won't be around for meetings in the SF bay area but hoping we can find some time that works for more of us to meet in a short while.

I am glad you guys had a chance to get together and have a true, verbal exchange of ideas and comments among yourselves.

I'll join Ian in inviting readers to meet for lunch after the show.
