Like you, I wish there were more local indie developer meet-ups... somewhere that didn't require bridge tolls, hours in traffic, or transferring 8 times from various form of public transport (hey, perhaps that's the inspiration for the next game! :)).
While my "day job" is programming at a "larger" local software company, I've a long-standing passion for indie games and lending assistance to others with similar interests.
Great idea for those whom don't care to travel to SJ or SF to find fellow game developers.
