The first meetup last week attracted a quite a decent size group.  And by the end, the discussion was actually quite lively.  And people told me that they went home glad that they came. We decided to have another meetup, this time on Wednesday, 7:30pm.  At No Starch Press.  38 Ringold St (near Civic Center BART), San Francisco. If you would like to come and talk about depression, or suicide, or share your story, or a friend's story, you are welcome to join us. We have a Google Groups that you are also welcome to join:http://groups.google.com/group/geeksanddepression I have received more emails than I can count saying that people wish that there was a meetup like this nearby where they live.  I would like to invite you to start a meetup in your home town.  It is well worth the small effort.  Here is what to do:     - put out the word everywhere to let people know of the meetup     - buy a few cookies and drinks and kleenex     - introduce the meetup by asking everyone to keep all stories confidential     - let everyone know that when someone is talking that it is best to listen     - share your story     - ask others if they would like to say something     - before people leave, ask if they would like another meetup, and if so, set a day/time/place, and maybe start an email list Together, we create the strong, wonderful community that all of us socially awkward geeks feel really good being a part of. Thanks,Mitch.
