This is a good thread :). I'm a WordPress Miami Organizer, and we have two meetups a month right now: a general, user one, and I host the Developers Nite. I'm also trying to help start Code for Ft. Lauderdale, which is a civic hacking group that's part of Code for America.
And then I'm pretty active on the web and stuff, but those are the human groups I mess around with.
