Definitely one of the cooler things that have cropped up lately are the gatherings during Ludum Dare events (Cambridge Indies, you guys rock). We definitely want to encourage more of you to do this.
So to help facilitate that, go add yourself to the map.
If you see many people near you, it might be worth trying to organize something. This could easily get out of hand, so post a reply ONLY if you see some people near you. Try to include a list of nearby larger cities, so to make searching for your proposed event easier. If you’ve found a few people and are ready to start discussing a venue, start new topic and I’ll link it up here.
Or if anybody has a better way to randomly organize many little gatherings (with almost no effort from me), let me know.
