    now, i realize the nature of this conversation could very well make my request impossible to fulfill: but if there’s any way that somebody could take notes or even record the evening’s discussion, I’d be very interested to read/listen/learn along with you.

    I can look into having some sort of recording device there, but since the cohort meeting is in a few days I’m not very confident that we’ll have something set up for this week’s meeting.

    Yeah, I was hoping to hide in a corner and listen in on (especially) this one, but my schedule won’t allow it. I wish I had one of those nifty digital voice recorders to lend you.
