Each time someone was interested in a local web design meetup here in Austin I would receive an email alert. This has been happening for many months since the first time I sought out such a group. There are already a number of other corollary groups that I attend that relate to this industry, Refresh Austin being the one I’m most closely associated, but it seems our fair city was lacking official an Meetup presence in this area.
With 146 and counting persons interested in an Austin Web Design Meetup and no way to communicate to them, I felt someone had to start it up if only as a social meetup or to steer them to more appropriate groups on Upcoming or Google Groups. So, I gulped and plopped down the fee to initiate one. (Why does Meetup charge so damn much for a service that so many other sites provide on an ad-driven model?)
Find us here: http://webdesign.meetup.com/457/. Join. RSVP.
Our initial meetup will be Thursday, May 17, 2007, 6:30 PM @ Halcyon (218 W 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
I hope you can make it!
