I am a huge supporter of this idea, I really like this kind of  
meeting.  I've helped run a few in NYC, and participated in others.   
We can find a way to make it fit the Pd group.

What I think works well is just setting up a bunch of 1 hour time  
slots and some rooms.  Then the morning starts with people talking to  
each other, hanging out and eating breakfast.  Then there is 1 hour to  
discuss and plan the schedule, which the whole group does together.   
People suggest sessions, people offer to lead sessions, and everyone  
discusses how to fit them into the schedule.

I am happy to help run the process or just participate.

one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better  
language; and every chapter must be so translated.... -John Donne
