That was Andrew (of Seattle PUG).
Re-introducing ourselves, hello, everyone, I'm Joel, and I helped start and
help run the DC and SF user groups.
Try really hard to be welcoming to new people. (Notice who comes back and who
doesn't to remind yourself of how important this is). Avoid "in-conversation"
vibes. Avoid assuming people know who "limi" is, or what the "foundation" is,
or other things that can just make people feel already out of it. If you're
not a natural welcomer, find an extrovert in your group, and see if they can
help you with this.
