    Is there anyone interested in a Windows Phone 7 Meetup in St. Louis, MO? I have been running the STL webOS Meetup for the past six months and I know of some real nice venues to host meetups. Now that I have dove into the WP7 world (and am liking it a lot), I'd like to test the waters regarding a meetup.

    I have already created a Twitter account for STL WP Meetup. You can follow here: https://twitter.com/STLWPMeetup

    I will post updates to it as they relate to upcoming meetups and just general chatter about Windows Phone. I have an inside source at Nokia who I hope to be working with soon regarding these meetups. I can't give a timetable regarding Nokia involvement, but I feel confident it would be within 2-3 months.

    What do you say?

    Yeah, too bad. Why don't you move out of there? Then move to the STL area and attend upcoming meetups. :)

    Haha, I got to finish college first.

    If I ever go on a road trip though, I'll be sure to stop by. :P

    That would be St. Louis, Missouri, USA. You're welcome to fly in any time, Winterfang!

    Awesome, Dave. I see that you followed me and I have returned the favor. I should have a meetup organized in 3-6 weeks. I am working hard on getting a contact at Microsoft who would want to be involved with the meetup. Maybe we can get some t-shirts or something, who knows. I'll keep you informed here and on Twitter. I look forward to meeting you and your friend in the future!

    I do hope you can come to the US someday. But don't just go to New York or LA. There's a whole lot more to the US than just those two cities.

    Thanks for the kind words. It seems like people are becoming aware of the meetup I'm organizing, so I think it will be a success. You should do the same for your city. Make a WP7 meetup. I've done this sort of thing before, so I could help you if you had questions.

    I think that's a pretty neat idea. Of course I'd be thrilled just to see someone else using a WP. If I lived close to St. Louis I'd be there.

    Well, you should make a meetup for Lake Charles. Someone's got to, why shouldn't it be you? :)

    True, but I wouldn't know where to start. I don't even know another person with a WP. :(

    Listen, if I can do it, you can too. When I started the STL HP webOS Meetup I didn't know a soul over here that had webOS. But, between getting on Twitter and marketing the meetup on webOS Nation Forums, I got a real solid group going. It just takes a little work, but you can do it. Would you like me to PM you tomorrow? I'm going to bed in just a bit and won't be online much longer.

    I also do not know a single person in the STL area with WP7. But look at the interest I've gotten here and on Twitter. People are going to come to the meetup once I get it all settled. It will happen and people will be there all because I took the time to market it. You can do the same, I promise.

    You can't fail unless you try.

    Well said. If you need a meeting place, my gal is the manager at Triumph in midtown near the Fox. Could have a private room set up or whatever accommodations needed.

    Wow, thanks Steve. I may take you up on that in the future. What cost is associated with the private room?

    No cost, I'll just have her put in a reservation. There is good food, plenty of beverage choices and also a motorcycle museum attached that is really interesting. Great place to check out.
