Meetup Alliance - Meetup.com, the social networking site, probably best known for becoming a driving factor in Howard Dean's presidential campaign, has created the Meetup Alliance offshoot site, which allows local groups (whether organized through other networking sites or just locally) to link up and create global "alliances."

So, will you have to cough up some cash to maintain your alliances in a few months?

The day Meetup started charging became known to many as "the day Meetup died". Every once in a while I receive a notice that an old meetup group I signed up for is being deleted for inactivity.

The most recent episode of the Radio Lab podcast was an old episode with an interesting segment about Meetup.

I agree with clevershark, though, that I lost all interest in Meetup when they started charging. I didn't think about it again until I heard this podcast the other day.
