//  Meeting discussion points
* Should we get a "rockstar" flown in from some other place to encourage

The answer on this is mostly - No - due to most developers careless
about parameterized queries and the overall value is questionable.
We can go through many different auditing scenarios from binary, source,
blackbox or tool instrumentation if needed.

Personally, I have found it doesn't matter if the prophet grew up in
your own town he will be ignored. The same idea should be applied to
needing to fly someone in from out of town when we have small numbers
amongst other things.

* Other questions - Who really is Tyler Ward ? Where is Waldo?

Future topics to discuss:
* Source Code Analysis - Input Tracing, demystifying source code
analysis. Date TBA
