Is anyone around here?  It would be nice to have a monthly meetup or at least stay connected here locally.  Thanks.

Good to connect.  We should set up a get-together when we have enough people responding to this thread...  do you go to local Bitcoin meetups in your area?   Isn't there a monthly one at the Plug & Play Tech Center?

Let me know if you need someone to advertise your meetup to get people.

That's what my delegate funds are for.

Thanks rgcrypto!  Will let you know.  Waiting until there are a few people on this board in our area so we can collaborate & co-organize.

Would a template to organize meetups be helpful to you?

I'm working on such document as we speak.

For example, making a demo of one of our mobile wallet and give away bitusd, make people trade among one another and then buy a coffee at the coffee shop where you hold the meetup.

You can then by back the bitusd from the coffee shop if he doesn't want to keep it or tell him to turn it into BTS if he wants to profit from the future of BitShares.

Great way to convert business and users simultaneously.

I'm sure it will be helpful especially when we reach out to the mainstream public, but I think targeted outreach to influencers and early adopter communities may need a lot of customization.   I think your demo will still be great though. 

I was planning to reach out to Bitcoin users first and need to find the most compelling approach.  I think the most immediate use case is Bitcoiners no longer need to exchange with fiat ever again and can remain in the cryptoworld without counterparty risk while still being able to spend dollars.  Anyways a Bitshares 101 for Bitcoiners meetup would be good...

I can create a bitShares Bay Area meetup.  Usually Meetup.com allows organizers to have 3 meetup groups for the monthly membership fee so if you are someone you know is running only one meetup group and can spare one that person can set up a San Francisco Bay Area bitShares meetup and I can co-organize.   Anyways let me know.  Thanks.

I believe so. I haven't attended any Bitcoin-related meetups for quite a while so I am not familiar beyond the updates I see on meetup.com.

Ethereum, Ripple & Stellar have pretty healthy meetup groups out here, so it will be nice to get a Bitshares one started.
