I fear I might be incurring the wrath of thousands here, but does the whole
First Tuesday thing still have relevance?

We went to one at the beginning of November to discuss online finance and
were a little disappointed by the whole experience - good speakers but a
too much self (or company) promotion and lots of people leaving early
(including one of the panel who had been wrongly briefed). Result was that
we did not learn anything particularly new and came away questioning the
whole purpose of the evening.

Perhaps First Tuesday was of the moment and Julie Meyer (right spelling?)
is right to have moved on to her next project.

Any views?
