Thumbs up Meetup is calling for new interest for Meetup groups and I spotted this URL


I have no idea the value of this information

For 30 days Meetup is calling for new interest for Meetup groups & members and I spotted this URL

Lack of "Interests" for computer users

Read the info below the "Post Comment" an other interesting info I did not know.

Meetup has only two "Interests" listed.
Ubuntu
and
Ubuntu Studio

I think someone may have a look at this http://www.linuxquestions.org
The comment below the "comment of the URL seems worth noting!!!

I did not know, I could do that with Linux or Ubuntu

When I look at some of the meetups map
http://linux.meetup.com/


http://ubuntu.meetup.com/

The membership & number of meetups are negligible compare to some of the following meetups

http://french.meetup.com/

http://german.meetup.com/

http://singles.meetup.com/

http://xp.meetup.com/

http://php.meetup.com/

There are lots of Linux User Groups everywhere or at least in the major cities in USA, They have their own web sites and they hold meetings monthly or weekly some of them. There are also conventions and all source of activities.

You should check them out.

I have joined some meetup groups but for different activities and I also meet with my LUG each week.

Hello TroN
I agree, there are so many activities with linux

Last week I did no know about "Ideas and Suggestions for Meetup", because Meetup changes often.

As an organizer of two meetup. I was lucky that one of the support person at
meetup HQ emailed me this info.

>>There are lots of Linux User Groups everywhere
Yup! many groups and many networks in "Linux" for people who have been there a while.
As a newbies Humm! a different story.

Linux does not look "organized" and every comes to conventions etc...this is mysterious
That makes the extra strength of Linux...

Anyway the meetup organization may start looking at including "Linux Interest"
