During my Adventures in F# series that I've been posting, I've always wondered where the interest in these languages come from.  Sure, we have a lot of user groups in the Washington DC area, just to name a few that I've been to or belong to:
But, what I was noticing is lack of where the true language geeks hang out.  Craig Andera pointed me in the last DC ALT.NET Meeting to a group that does just that while he was looking at Lisp and Scheme in the past year.  This group is called FringeDC which is not interested in the mainstream languages such as C#, C++, Java, Ruby and so on.  Instead they focus on fringe languages such as Lisp, Scheme, Haskell, Erlang, Prolog, OCaml, Squeak and so on.  I'm sure we could pile F# and Scala on that bandwagon as they both are fringe-ish and not mainstream just yet.  If you're in the Washington, DC area, go ahead and check them out.  I'll be sure to attend some of these when time permits.  And if they're interested in some F# stuff, I'm sure I could deliver.
