The RDU area is really hopping these days with technology groups and events. BarCampRDU just happened last month, along with Ignite Raleigh which I sadly missed. Just recently I discovered there is a Triangle GTUG, one of many GTUGs (Google Technology User Group), and an RDU Wavelets group on Meetup.com.

And to cut off any complaints, yes, there are plenty of older and more established groups in the area also, like TriZPUG, TriJUG, TriPUG, TriLUG.

The contrarian in me wants to build another major city in the region and force everyone to rename themselves to Quad__UG.
