Perhaps we all want something different out of our FFF? I for one look forward to learning something new or at least being exposed to different ideas and information... *whether or not I agree with it*.

Of course I also like to renew friendships, which can be done before and after speakers and at other programs, but I view the FFF as a wonderful opportunity to expand my horizons. I am less than thrilled with a talking head about something I've heard before. I don't want a "controversial" speaker at every meeting either, but once or twice a year might be a nice change of pace and offer a challenge to my established view of things.

Getting out of my "comfort zone" [sometimes unwillingly] is the only way I know to force consideration of unfamiliar or unwelcome viewpoints. Scheduling these events at times other than the FFF is likely to fail. People don't like to question what they already *know* and will probably reject the challenge if given the opportunity. Once exposed, however, I think most would appreciate the enlightenment. :)
