At some level, it's only fun if we make a more private group with some 
kind of membership agreement so that we can get serious about sweet 
ideas.  Our various employment could make this problematic, although 
there are ways to deal with that.  I've been trying to pioneer an 
arrangement that balances and clarifies the non-employee innovation 
while in a corporate arrangement, but as you might guess it's slow going 
with people who don't get it.
