Corporate .NET User Groups?
Everyone knows about INETA and how it supports public .NET user groups. In fact, according to the counter on the up left corner of the INETA home page, there are currently 522 registered user groups with 196,658 users worldwide.
But...what about the corporate (or internal organization) user groups out there? It's hard to even know who they are since many organizations have privacy and security concerns. But you just know they'd benefit from having some of our “rock star” speakers give presentations. And heck, INETA probably wouldn't even have to buy them pizza.
Even cooler...how about a “buddy“ alliance between a (public) local UG and a (private) corporate one? Perhaps they could put together periodic joint all-day events? There are some obvious cross-polination ideas here.
