Yea!!! One of my favorite Open Source projects is forming an Atlanta users' group, namely: PostgreSQL. In my opinion, one of, if not the best open source databases around!! Here's the intro from their blog:

Hey, y'all; due to a pair of funerals I've attended these past few days, I'm behind on meeting planning. Let's have the first meeting next Tuesday, March 18th, at 6:30 PM in the Buckhead Borders (in the upstairs coffee lounge). At the meeting, we'll look at a pair of PostgreSQL LiveCDs, discuss organization of the Atlanta-Area PostgreSQL User Group, talk about upcoming conferences (PostgreSQL Conference EAST and PGCon 2008), and generally geek out over the world's most advanced open source DB. ;)

Leave a comment or drop an email to if you're planning on attending; I look forward to seeing all of y'all next week! :)

update: ok, looks like another fledgling open source group has gone moribund. There hasn't been any activity on this for about nine months, so I'm marking it as inactive for the time being.
