    No I'm not from Binghamton but I'm a huge Ottawa Senators fan and by default the Binghamton Senators.

    Re: Anyone from Binghamton?

    The steps to getting started are:

    (note: "Just Do It" is the theme)

    1. Find a location (a location in a 'good part' of town that is considered safe and secure)

    • Has Internet connectivity (this is a requirement for most geeks leaving the house)
    • Has an area that can be 'reserved' for a meeting
    • (optional) has a projector and screen
    • (optional) will help promote the group (advertise the meeting to bring 'customers')

    2. Schedule some meetings

    • Get some 'speakers' lined up that will present interesting topics
    • Plan on hosting some 'special' events -- launch parties, bug jams, install fests
    • Hold an Ubuntu Hour
    • Have some CDs ready to hand out

    3. Promote the group to area LUGS (Linux User Groups)
    4. Promote the group to area colleges that have CS departments

    ----
    After you get #1 done contact me and I can help with the other bullets.
