Great to see there's some interest.
Kai - thanks for setting up the wiki. (
I just put up a proposed meeting format on there and also a set of chapter 1
problems which we can hopefully go over at the 1st meeting.

To figure out the meeting time, can everybody please put in what time works
for you at:

Look forward to meeting you all,

Ps. Does somebody know how to set up a mailing list?
