I've noticed several things recently that made me think that getting some level of collaboration among the various Rubyist organizations would be a good thing. There are a number of groups within several hours of each other in the North East, would they be able to get together for a regional RubyConf, or just share information about meetings so that people could drive for a bit to attend something interesting with another group? At least three groups are setting up Ruby Hackiing nights on Tuesdays. Would it be interesting to have all of those groups working on a single project, communicating via irc, and sharing a common scm? If you've read this far (and haven't dismissed me as a nutjob), I think we ought to do something about this. I've set up a google group: http://groups.google.com/group/Ruby-Brigades If you run, or help run, a group, please join up and let's talk about making our groups better, combining our efforts, recommending presenters, etc.
