With last week's episode focused an #CMAD, we pick up where we left off on Episode 007. Chris has a question on when to start offline events for his community. What types of offline events are there and how does one start. We take the case of "user groups" and use Episode 007's BeagleBoard case study. We get into metrics and I think there are many ways to measure, but thanks to Chris for always helping me bring it down to simple terms. In the end, our discussion gives Chris a Eureka moment. Listen for it.
