Well, here are the results so far (as of Feb 20/2K) of my requests for feedback:

 
City

Anchorage

Chicago
4
Silicon Valley 
2
LA area
4
Boston (+NH)
3
Dallas (+TX)
2
Texas (mid/panhandle)
2
Atlanta (+AL)
2
Philly (plus NY/NJ/MD/DC)
7
Minneapolis
1
Syracuse NY
1
Va. Beach

This doesn't seem to indicate much interest in the idea (at least not enough to book meeting rooms, build syllabi, and schedule travel, obviously), but I will wait another 2-3 weeks before I completely give up. I need to get a minimum of 20-25 people per city, before I can begin to consider flying there for this.


 

The Philly could conceivably happen anyway (in some form), since my oldest daughter lives there and I have been planning to go see her before summer anyway.
