Welcome Kyle!

I'm afraid the meeting times went a little stale while we were all  
focused on the summit.  I'll be updating them today.  Our next UX  
Walkthrough meeting will be a week from Friday, October 12th, 8 a.m.  
PDT / 11 a.m. EDT.  It would be great to have you join us.  If you'd  
like to connect beforehand I'm happy to chat and get you up to speed  
before the meeting sometime.
