  •  I would be interested in a group, I dont have the free time to organize it though. I am in the Flint area, Ann arbor wouldnt be unreasonable to drive to though.

  • I am starting to think we need more than one group or teleconf at least.

    I could not organize an escape from a wet paper bag.

    Let's break this down.

    We need to know:

    1. what is expected of the Group by a:Group Members and b; Spiceworks.

    2. Timing/location/frequency of meetings.

    3. Agenda of Meetings.

    ? What else ?

  •  Its my assumption it would be run like any other user group. Ill have to see if I have the time to organize it. We could just look at the model of a thriving group already going and  tailor it to meet our needs.

  • Hi there,

    Anyone still interested in getting this group together? If so, I'm always here to help & will provide you with an agenda & other helpful tools for your first meet up!

    Hope to hear from y'all soon!

  • Hi everyone. I'm in the Farmington Hills/Novi/Wixom area. Contact me if you would like to schedule a meet up and we can find a day/time that would be reasonable for most in the southeast. I propose a thursday  afternoon/evening get together around 12 Oaks. I think that is relatively easy for most of you to get to.

    Respond back if there's still interest and we'll plan for next Thursday.

  • You are not alone.  I am in Troy. A meet and greet would be great!

  • Sorry guys, and gals.... I've been absolutely swamped here at the office..... but I may have time to throw some ideas out to the group...... Looking at the map and where everybody works.... I thought of a few places  to do a meeting...... say like a dinner and drink and chat..... and try to keep everything close to an expressway....

    so my thoughts are this:  Bar Louis at the great lakes crossing on the first monday of every month.  or rochester mills brew pub in rochester first monday of the month...... this keeps the meet ups on a regular time schedule and both locals are easy to get to and find... both serve food and have adequate seating...

    If you dont mind the drive i would also suggest chardonay in oxford they have several different floors that we could meet in.....

  • I would not be able to make it to Great Lakes or Rochester, but 12 Oaks sounded good to me. In that area there is the "Library Pub" or maybe "Bagger Daves" would be quieter so we can hear ourselves talk. 

    Was this post helpful? thumb_up thumb_down
  • Rochester/Great Lakes works for me, but if it's a hike for too many people, how about we split the difference - any good places in, say, Southfield?

  • Copper Canyon Brewery in Southfield. http://www.coppercanyonbrewery.com/

    Also, Troy has lots of stuff and near highways.  Not saying Troy because I work there, does not bother me to drive to Great Lakes or Southfield.

  • I could do Southfield.

    I'm in, but willing to move date sooner, possibly not a Monday.(still hung over) 

    From the copper canyon web site: "For your entertainment or relaxing work we have free high speed wireless internet ..."

    Maybe we can do a video conference for those who cannot attend, but I do not posess the equipment.

  • Food Court at Scummit Mall?  opps nm doesn't exist anymore.

    So is the date/time set?  Haven't notice an official notice yet.

    And umm.  really want a bunch of tech geeks at a location whose website still have "Under Construction" signs?  :) http://www.coppercanyonbrewery.com/events.php

    Great Lakes or Southfield works for me as well.

  • I live in Ann Arbor, but work out of Farmington Hills. I am interesting in finding out where the finalized location is. I also like the idea of a web conference as this will help facilitate the growth of this group.

    Web conference....nice idea....There is a much better chance of me getting a web cam installed than finding the time to attend a meeting in person...

  • Ok people..so there is a networking event put on by http://www.detroitnet.org/index.php/event/october-casual-networking-social-networking-for-it-professionals-in-metro-detroit/

    Detroitnet.org is a real cool group of people it seems. I haven't been to one but I'm planning on going to this one. Please consider going if you are in the area.

    They have a couple different kinds of events. The Pink Slip Parties they like you to sign up for. just go to their web site for more information and follow their suggestions. This one on October 20th at 5pm, will be a casual networking event.

    Please follow their suggestions because these guys are doing this out of their own accord and it is a great service for us IT folks or those aspiring to be IT folks. They have guidelines they list on their site. Please read them if you plan on going.

    The best way to get their updates is to follow them on LinkedIn. Please let me know if any of you plan on going so we can chat and network while we are there.
