“ No one is an island. It can be lonely out there trying to run a small business, and groups like this offer an opportunity to meet others in your field, share experiences, and find people who you can help and who can help you. Whenever I've networked with peers, I've found many more opportunities for collaboration than I have ones where I faced red-toothed competition. And, let's face it, we IT types are not known for being gregarious, outgoing types, so we need to force ourselves to meet people. This is a good, low risk, way of doing so. Join up, join in, have fun, and share some experiences. After over 5 decades on the planet, I've learned that having fun and meeting up with people are way more important than work and technology, and combining them, that's just the icing on the cake. And don't worry about the Olive Garden, the food's decent, the prices are reasonable, and they're willing to tolerate Geeks! Can't be all bad. ”
