Jay, and/or Jason:

Can you tell the community if the LLC has any plans/thoughts to stop looking
for new places to meet, rather to just establish a list of 10-15 cities where
we have successfully met, and simply repeat?

Many have suggested this as a better policy, but it seems that it's just

Christian Huitema made a good case already for the Asia list being not just
Bangkok/Singapore, but also including Tokyo/Yokohama and Seoul.
That's four for Asia.

One could easily add: North America: Vancouver, San Francisco, Montreal, Philadelphia.
Europe: Prague, Berlin, London, (Paris?)

There, that's 12 cities already, and I said 10-15.
Could probably add another three.  Maybe Madrid will wind up on the list.

I'm sure that many of the cities on your list are potentially interesting,
but why bother make the effort?
Yes, we should have "*" in the rotation 1-1-1-*, but we should do it
intentionally as reach out.
I don't see Austin (or Ottawa, or Malta) as being reach-out, as nice as they
might be.
