I'd agree with this. A friend of mine came to a LUG meeting a couple of
months back, his poor girlfriend was bored to years by all the geek talk.
I guess a non-geeky meeting maybe where folks could show things that
they'd be interested in would be good. I'm trying to think of it from a
non-geek perspective, such as a coffee morning type thing where you can
maybe share tips etc. I guess I'd have to speak to some non-geeks and
get their opinions as I could be really wrong :-)
