you should always have a dummy option in public internet polls. This will help weed out those who just *have* to vote, even if the choices are not applicable to them ;-)

As Alex says, just add an option for "lol, wut?" to every poll to weed out people who might otherwise vote randomly for the hell of it. :P

Should be an Austin, TX meet up. It's like the Bay Area, but a hell of a lot more affordable :)

I live within driving distance of New York City. I do not plan to attend any such event in California in person.

I was only proposing an informal meetup, not an international conference.

I do as Eliezer says have my GMU colleagues to talk to, but even so we might consider having a DC area meetup sometime. Maybe we should see how the Bay Area version turns out first.

Central Ohio anyone?

It's a lot like the Bay Area, or Austin, except well...

ok I'm deluding myself - it's not at all like the Bay Area or Austin.

While we're at it... central North Carolina?

At the risk of revealing my ignorance, at a meeting of Bayesians, who would do the talking? I would attend Eliezer's gathering just to observe and absorb.

I'm up in Sonoma County -- how about something teleconferenced via Skype, or something multipoint?

Butler, I'm near Sonoma Cy. Send me an email sometime.

Looks like there had been 52 responses before me.. I hope I am free to attend (I'm in Berkeley..)

A long way off yet... but given the hopefully growing correlation, how about another one at the time and town of the next Singularity Summit?

Nick: Look at http://www.stat.duke.edu/ .
To paraphrase two CMU statisticians at once: if Bayesianism is a cult, Duke is its Sodom & Gomorrah.

Coincidentally or not: my blog and this blog are the first two Google hits to bayesian+sodom+and+gomorrah

If we are 15 or less, I can volunteer my companies offices in Foster City.

What about a Boston/Cambridge-area meetup? This seems to be another area that would be appropriate for such a thing. Though, of course, no OB writers are from around here afaik.
