But! "It’s nice to wear jeans to work as a business owner, but
understanding the impact to your bottom line is also important."

I found this Zed Shaw gem interesting, inspirational, and on topic.

For me, an interesting group would be open source focused, look at a
lot of different technologies (not just 1 langauge, for example), and
be hands on. Labs instead of lectures.

An open source club (think fraternal organization) that had a
dedicated physical location would be really cool. Groups could pop up
based on who happened to be there at any given time, instead of
formally planned meetings. (But that's just my personality..
preferring the magic of chaos over order.)
