    I had an idea today that I thought might be cool and am looking to see if there would be any interest and if so some feedback. Every year there's always massive conventions in the electronics industry as well as every other industry involving big players. However, there's never been anything specifically involving people just getting together that are enthusiasts of the same thing. I know there are car clubs that do this for example but not phone enthusiasts. So, I was thinking what about something for Android enthusiasts. This doesn't mean specifically Hero owners but any Android user's across the board. Call me a dork but it would be neat to meet some of the people I've talked to on these forums in person just to hang out for a while. Maybe there would even be a possibility of getting some industry interest from the big boys such as if Sprint, HTC, Google wanted to have reps there just to talk and answer questions.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be a convention so to speak but an organized way of getting together to share your interests with other people like you do on here, but instead in person for a day.

    I unfortunately don't have the means to actually rent out a place to make this happen nor do I have the connections to get any major players interested but that doesn't matter. It could start small and get bigger if there's enough or any interest.

    I definitely don't have all the answers on this nor know exactly how it could happen which is why I'm turning to you guys. Maybe there are some of you that would like the idea and then it would be a matter of figuring out where geographically it would happen and when. If anyone is truly interested I would be happy to discuss ideas further via email or phone just post on here first.

    Yea, you're absolutely right! That's why I figured I would post it on here since I use this forum the most frequently and then if there was enough interest start trying to see what interest was like in other Android forums.

    i'd move this to the general android forum section, if it's for all android loves don't bury it in the sprint htc hero thread... you'll never get as many views down here... good idea though... i'll be a mascot for the event and run around in a droid outfit :)

    I would no doubt be interested in something like that. Then you can get together and see what modifications other people have done to their Android phones, etc.

    Agreed. It would be a chance to not only hang out but also discuss things that are a challenge to do over the internet. It would also give a people a chance to network, troubleshoot, discuss general ideas and make a few friends. Pictures are great but sometimes it's nice to get to see other people and the things they've done in person.

    That's what I'm talkig about! Somehow we have to get in touch aversusb. I will really need help if this idea is going to become a reality!

    So far all the response I've been receiving has been positive and I thank everyone who has responded so far.

    I'm still trying to figure out what's the best way for anyone to get a hold of me to discuss things further. Should I create a new personal email account for this then link it to my original post?
