I was honored to be able to attend the first meeting of the Bahams .net (www.bahanet.org) user group in Nassau last week. Kyle Baly (http://codebetter.com/blog... organized the meeting held at a local comany IPBS. Fairly small group but that is ok!

After getting them warmed up to what was possible in learning, business networking and socializing, ......
