    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.

    You'd have to have it in a place that is easy to get to or very nice. (Some place nice enough to make AstroDonut come visit us.) Event planning is a pain in the butt. A friend of mine is trying to get a gaming convention going in Maryland (this year it happened on the tail end of the blizzards so it was rough.)

    I'd be game for something like that.

    Interesting idea, I would think Google would be all over this. Then again, I think the Apple fans are the one who started their own annual meetup. Could be pretty fun!

    If it were held across the street from the Apple event, I would go no matter where it was. The nerd on nerd riots would be the apex of my life.
