There's 19 of us in the group. Hard to really organize anything given how little this group gets used. Would love to know more about who's out there, but spending a weekend in the woods this April isn't in the cards for me.

Hey Macro.  I'm not sure about going to Rowe either.  I'm tempted but it is far out there and a bunch of money I'd have to spend extra this year, which is rough when starting your own business.  Anyway, I'm a 2008 Northwestern grad in Psychology but went to finance as a day trader ever since graduation.  I'm 31 and in Lincoln Park.  How about yourself?

I'm also in Lincoln Park.

I'm also in Lincoln Park.  '92 Indiana U MBA grad. Didn't learn anything in school about how money, our debt system and the FED REALLY work.  Worked in corporate HR for 20 years, now a stay-at home mom.  51 yrs old.

East Lake View

I live with my family in East Lake View. My kids go to Lincoln Park High School, though. 

I teach quite a bit, my wife is an art conservator. She is not all that interested in how things are going, having lived through the collapse of Soviet civilization already.

I have a strong academic interest in what is going on, but have done nothing active about it. My priority is giving my family as many of the benefits of a disappearing technological world as possible. They are aware that there lives will not likely be like they are now.

I went to all three Age of Limits conferences. I do not have a lot of time, but spend a little of it giving back to the world by copy editing for Gail Tverberg.

I am also interested in beer.
