We live-blog what we our drinks and snacks at Zeke's.

I could see it as another side to kwlug-announce. Meeting
announcements/reminders, notices about content updates on kwlug.org. The
only issue I see is interested parties already get that through
kwlug-announce, and the kwlug.org main page.

Where it could provide benefit is with Twitter's new lists" feature. The
kwlug user have a list of "Members", so it would be easy to find
like-minded people also involved in KWLUG. Although it would require
somebody to maintain this list...
