Emacs San Francisco Meetup Group

Table of Contents


There wasn't an organized meetup group in the bay area for Emacs users, so I created one. It's in its youth, and it has a lot of work to do before it'll be a surviving community, but I'm going to try to put a lot of weight in to getting a healthy community of Emacs hackers going out here.

For now, I'm focusing on SF and the East Bay, but I'm certainly not against someone setting up an SV/peninsula subcommunity.
