While an events database would be useful, using a -chat list to find
other NetBSD users in your area seems somewhat ineffecient.  I know
some of you are familiar with sixdegrees[1].  If enough people ask
them for a 'Computers & Technology - Operating Systems - NetBSD' hobby
category, it would be possible to use their system to search for other
NetBSD users based on that category and geographical location, all the
way from major continents down to individual cities.
