Jared stop trying to hijack machine learning! Nah just kidding. Could
you organize a doodle for the ml class meetups that people could
informally vote on? I can't do Wednesdays but I'm not as important
as I'd like to think I am :)

As for keeping the Monday meetups - I don't think that's super relevant
to be honest. Over the past 1.5 years, I've been to like 95% of the
meetups, and sometimes it's just me. What seems to draw people
to the ML meetups is content, not having a place to chill and chat
about it. So I would say we should just adapt our meetup time to
whatever/whoever wants to present and what the topic is.
