This went well; September 1st.
Hanging out afterward (almost 4 PM!) are a few members of a group that meets the third Wednesday of the month at 1:30 PM in the Milpitas Library computer room. (Kenna Mawk, R.I.P., had been scheduled to make the presentation at this meeting.)
Another group, complimentary to Milpitas, is starting in Saratoga. It will meet in the computer training room of the library on first Thursdays of the month, same time of day.
WordPress-Saratoga MeetUp Group <- 1st meeting is September 1st at 1:30 PM!
By the way, this blog, lincolnCt.com, is one of the simplest examples of what wordpress.com offers. (WordPress.org, on the other hand, gives you all the PHP/MySQL code to run on your own server.)
