Had to search around on Meetup, since the link http://www.meetup.com/SVForum-HealthITSIG located on http://www.svforum.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=506&parentID=1171&nodeID=1 did not work.
No. I think I first heard about SV Forum when it was affiliated (or at least shared an email list) with the local Cornell Club. That was probably 15 or so years ago.
Since the answer to this is dynamic, it might make more sense to obtain this info from members' profiles. But here is my current list: The Bay Area Quantified Self Meetup Group; BioCurious; The Campbell Boardgames Meetup Group; Cognitive Science Reading & Discussion Group; The Geek Club - South Bay; Metabolic Engineering and Evolution in the Bay (ME2Bay); My People Connection Gamers - Strategy & Party Games; Open Science Bay Area; The Palo Alto Boardgames Meetup Group; Play The Classics Board Game Meetup; Quantified Self Silicon Valley; San Antonio Board Gamers; Silicon Valley Introverts!; The Silicon Valley NewTech Meetup Group [SVNewTech]; Silicon Valley Software Quality Association (SSQA); Silicon Valley Tabletop Gaming
Quantified Self; Statistical validity; Open Science
