I completely agree, and I do hope that somebody comes up with a European
venue. Until one materializes, though, I'm going to continue working the
Hong Kong prospect. Even if only ten of us show up, I think that it's
important that we have some physical meeting called LGM in 2018. And,
thanks to the GIMP, it would be very easy to edit the photographs to make
the meeting look like a huge success.

I was going to offer to host in Saint Louis, but, with immigration controls
tightening by the week, I believe that turnout would still be better in
Hong Kong.
