Good idea - but we could take this further and make it a computer
science/technology interest group encompassing a multitude of topics from
programming languages, operating systems, artificial intelligence, etc...

I'm not sure how successful such a group would be; would it be a useful idea
to start out within another group(like PLUG) and then form a separate forum
if there seem to be enough attendees?
