I'm with Sanjay too. Even if you just pick the topic out of a hat from the suggestions it would be much less hassle than trying to achieve a consensus on each month's subject. But I trust David B to pick a subject that sounds interesting, challenging and "do-able" for most of us. "Favorite Chair" shows that he is thoughtful and creative in his choice.

Remember when Aggie asked APUG members for suggestions for a name for her magazine? I wish that I could find that thread. There was one suggestion for every person who responded. If she had waited for a consensus, the project would have never moved past the naming stage .
