Building Rails and Standards Tribes in Savannah

I was thinking this morning about moving to Savannah, since the new job’s down there, and what I wanted to do to find a tribe. I have several great non-geospecific tribes already, my W3C scattered around the globe, my SxSW tribe and then my AOL tribe also spread around the globe, but mostly local to Northern Virginia (this includes “escapees” at various startups and places around the area). But, I’ll be moving to a new city, and I like having a local tribe.\
I went looking this morning before heading over to the conference, and there’s no Refresh Savannah or Ruby Users Group that I could find through Google. So… it looks like we need to start them! I’ve got the domain names registered. Who wants to help?

  1. It cracks me up that you are thinking about this while your wife is thinking about carpet and canned goods.

  2. Congrats on the new gig man. Savannah is such a cool town, TOTALLY different vibe than the madness that is DC/NoVA. As someone pointed out in a comment on your previous post, be sure to check out the “Golden Isles” on the SE coast of GA–St. Simon’s (I lived there for a few years as a kid), Jeckyll Island (nature preserve-like, or used to be), Sea Island (mega rich).
