Not to get toooo off-topic but we discussed a little while back on 
[] we discussed holding an ApacheCon east.  For all the 
east coasters who can't quite make it cross country or any Europeans who 
might be crazy enough to make the Atlantic a daytrip or so.  This would 
be a smaller more informal even of course maybe a couple nights of 
slideshows and afterwards dinner, etc.  Maybe doing it on a weekend so 
folks can make it.

Other lists that I'm on have been talking about "events for Xers" where 
X is the name of the project.  To me it seems more sensible to combine 
them and have some cross polination.

I suggest trying to partner with local universities and JUGs.  The goals 
should be to:

a. get greater involvement from outsiders through exposing them to 
insiders (one hopes the two are not inversely proportional ;-) )  

b. give folks more opportunities to get facetime.  Stronger 
relationships are formed by breaking bread together.  I'm sure their are 
studies and crap on this, and I've even read one, but I forgot where 
they are ;-).
