Where are the Oracle Meetups?

I note a lot of pent-up demand for Oracle "meetups" across the world - many people interested in them, but few organizers. (Yeah, there's also a lot of spam in here. Meetup.com needs to work on that.)

If you're an Oracle ACE this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and enthusiasm with the rest of the community. Similarly, user groups can use this tool to great advantage (as MySQL users have).

Or, maybe you just want to find people in your area interested in the tantalizing combination of beer and PL/SQL. Meetup.com is a great way to do that.

My meetup city is riddled with recruiters and milfs looking to take a DBA for a ride.

San Francisco has a lot of recruiters too from what I can tell. However the more people interested in PL/SQL and beer who start to sign up the better it will get.

Exactly - in a weak ecosystem, the bottom-feeders come out.

Oracle Developers and DBAs gain the community experience from local Oracle User Groups. Many of the user groups are really good. Maybe some Oracle meetups will happen but many Oracle User Groups are a hard act to follow. --Owen

Agreed, but why can't the OUGs use the meetup infrastructure for the purpose of creating meetings etc,?
