International Slashdot Meetup Day: I was browsing MeetUp.com, which I found via the Webby Awards (they won something….) and I found that there’s a Slashdotter group meeting right here in Sioux Falls (and in Huron, no less).
On a superficial level, cool. On a deeper level, this is just one more amazing thing that the Net can do — bring people like this together when they have no prior knowledge of or sense of community. While Slashdot (or Fark — ha!) meetings may not change the world, there are other groups that just might. Browse MeetUp for your city sometime. There’s power here.
