I wonder if others out here would be interested in participating in a
roundtable so we can share what we've learned. Particularly interesting to
me is which apps are good and trustable. (I find the market mostly "rough",
with a few gems, and a lot of creepy stuff. Why does a tic-tac-toe game need
access to my phone & contact info? :-P )

Since we're booked thru early 2011, it wouldn't be for a while. Another
alternative (esp since these devices are hard (I think!?) to throw onto a
projector) would be to do a less formal one at one of our social gatherings.
