This isn't a part of the website I visit often. It seems to me that it would be useful to have a facility to locate members in a specific geographic area and message them to try to organize interest groups/workshops. Does that facility already exist?

I recognize that I can use google and search for "Minnesota site:arduino.cc" and find posts by members who've put that in their profile info. It doesn't make it real easy to find and message then.

I also realize that there would be some danger that spam might come our way if local electronics distributors used such a facility, so some safeguard would be desirable.

Mowcius started a publically editable google map thingy where we could stick a pin in for ourselves.

Can't remember where it was though, you could try private message him or ask him in a thread he's posting in.
