I like the idea of using Meetup because it opens the doors for others
outside the WellyLUG community as well. There are already a fair number of
techy groups on Meetup - I'm sure we could get some numbers from there as
well. Using Meetup, we could announce stuff like Installfests, which may
encourage newbies to learn more about Linux and FLOSS culture.

If we are to encourage new users and ensure a growing Linux community, we
have to open our doors and announce ourselves to the world. If you know of
a platform better than Meetup, I'm interested.
