Starting a thread :)
My plan is to resurrect my currently dormant "EBDUG" meetup, which conveniently can stand for "East Bay Backdrop and Drupal Users Group" :p
I even have a domain name for it, though the existing site appears to be borked: http://ebdug.org/
Well, look at that...the future has become the present.
As previously, umm, announced, let's have a loose planning meeting on Oct 4 (which is currently tomorrow) at Sideshow Kitchen in Oakland. It's convenient for some :)
I'll send an announcement to the EBDUG list on meetup, which will undoubtedly surprise most of the people on the list. And we'll see what happens.
