The ideal people would be based in the Chicago area and be able to provide some insight on why these tools are so interesting. We are not averse to using the technologies for remote presentations, but it is nice to invite presenters out for food and drinks after the meetings. I'd be happy to do something (maybe in conjunction with others), but I also like hearing from different voices at our KM Chicago meetings.
The next meetings of KM Chicago are January 9th, February 13th and March 13th, though January would be ideal to catch the wave of interest in the topic. We meet in the evenings from 5-7 pm at web-connected locations in the Loop and Northbrook.
