I think it _is_ fortunate.  I think we can do it better as noted
earlier.  I think meeting times and places are exactly what kwlug.org
should be/do.  I think the audience is "people new to Linux and in the
region or new to the region and into Linux."

I think the "conversion" to borrow Glenn's / Bill's term, is
interested people showing up for meetings.

There are other places for features, columns, tips and tricks.
Nothing stopping anybody from blogging those things on kwlug.org

I think it would be nice to have more of the presentations on kwlug.
I'm not the only one who has failed to include my slides.  Do
presentation notes / slides count as things to drive traffic?

Suggest an audience / mission / goal that we should be serving as KWLUG.

There should be an RSS feed for meeting agendas.  How did I break that?
