Thanks to Aaron Ruscetta for the following description of ALE:

ALE was founded in December, 1994 and has tracked the evolution of Linux from its root as a Unix technology hobby to its domination of the internet and on to becoming a familiar, user friendly computing environment (with all the associated niches it has been filling along the way). The ALE organization maintains the relaxed, casual structure of a home / student / enthusiast group, though the mailing list and meetings address a wide range of topics that are as likely to be relevant to IT administrators and developers as the everyday Linux user. ALE currently provides 2 monthly meeting opportunities: ALE Northeast which is hosted in Duluth, and ALE Central which is hosted on the Emory campus. The meetings are held on the 1st and 2nd Thursday of each month respectively.
