P.S. 8 bit DJ, and no discussions of Objective-C

I'd definitely be interested in meeting other developers so I could ask them beginner-type questions on a program I'm writing. Would this be OK since you say no discussions of Obj-C?

Yes, Josh and I have been thinking about it for months! The time for action is at hand!

Any iPhone/iPad developers in the northeast who's been disappointed with all the really cool get-togethers on the west coast need to chime in. Minimal tech talk, more socialization, and probably about the same amount of alcohol consumption... all without the hassle of flying to California

If we get a small, fanatical response I'd be happy to host it up here in coastal New Hampshire. Extra activities here would include sightseeing cruises from my dock to the Isles of Shoals or other cool destinations, several great local breweries, and possibly a complete take over my friends' restaurant for an evening of i-Device madness

June sounds great to me. Hopefully I can have a build of Spirit Hunter Mineko ready to share/preview

(Deth4U2, I think there can certainly be a bit of Objective-C talk! Just expect it to go downhill by the late afternoon )

I was sort of kidding... While I won't be talking about obj-c, anyone else can.
I can talk about photoshop and 3d studio max. :P

OK, so it's more of a relaxer/mixer than a "let's see what we can code in a day" scene. I gotcha.

just about fun, maybe a little show and tell, some drinking and games.
Its always cool to hear other people's experiences with the App store.
If anyone wants to volunteer a help desk we could probably do that too.
I could do some type of art tutorial, but Kevin's right, that'd have to be earlier on, before the fun begins!

Josh beat me to it, but that'd be the idea!

Certainly talk of coding and artwork and music will arise. People should come to share ideas, demos, meet some of your peers, and have fun! Who knows, if there's enough interest we might need to get serious and arrange conference space, but I think it'd be great contrast to these other meetups to have a more laid back "party".

Whether the meetup lasts one day and night, or a weekend, is open for debate

In case you can't tell, we're making the plan up as we go! Things may need to change if there's a few hundred interested people rather than a dozen or two. The meetup picture will get more clear as the scope of our foolish idea takes shape! Anyone else interested, please chime in with your thoughts
