I'm running late as usual, so I'll dash this off and possibly amend later or post a followup.
I don't know what our record attendance was but we probably doubled it last night at about 40 people. Fortunately Clay was able to procure us a larger conference room that could hold us.
Daniel's talk was great — it addressed areas I should definitely know better and in fact had recently struggled with. I got the talk on video which I will post this weekend. It turned out okay but I made the mistake of pointing the camera at Daniel with the bright projection screen behind him, so he looks like he's in the witness protection program.
We had quite a few newcomers who'd heard of CocoaHeads via Larry Legend's iOS meetup. Larry himself was there and told us a bit about his group. If you think 40 is a lot of people, you should have been there Monday, when he had the Apple Store packed to the rafters.
We raffled off two AppViz licenses using our traditional heads-and-tails methodology. (I wonder if arms-in-the-air/arms-folded would feel less goofy.) I've sent IdeaSwarm the info they need to generate the license keys.
When it looked like we had about 20 for dinner, someone suggested calling Patsy's to warn them and to let them know we wouldn't mind being broken up into multiple tables if necessary. This turned out to be a very good idea. When we got there they had set up a gigantic table for us and they greeted us very cheerfully.
