My fascination with social media was probably rooted back in 2001 after finishing my degree at Georgia Tech in Computer Science while minoring in Organizational Psychology and Cognitive Psychology.
Along the way I've joined and studied upward of 100+ social networks and probably have accounts in 500+ social media sites.
Then in 2007, I decided to start my own "super niche" network for people with mohawks and see what would happen. Less than 42 months into the experiment MohawksRock.com we have 4000+ members from 200+ countries and as of Aug 2011 we just had our 1,000,000th visitor.
AtlantaUserGroups.com is my 3rd social networking site, and I'm hoping that it will help provide a centralized location for groups in Atlanta to promote their events, and more importantly for visitors to learn of events that they would like to attend.
I constantly hear about events other groups are having that would I love to attend, but always hear too late. Then as president of the Atlanta ColdFusion User Group, I knew we had great topics and speakers that could interest other groups as well.
Here's to staying more informed of all the great networking and learning opportunities our user groups work very hard to provide.
UPDATE: In 2015, I left the J.O.B to help my wife's business, GlamKam.com keep growing and to start my own company, Massive Reach, focused on helping businesses in technology, marketing, leadership and digital strategy.

Hey Cheyenne, thanks for checking out MavenMatch.com. We think it's a win for everyone that uses it. Please let any IT contracting professionals you know about us. It's all about finding that next gig and making more money.
You mentioned Stephon Cristol... How should I try and contact him? I tried using AUG search but couldn't find him through it. I also tried searching for him in the pyatl related pages. No success either.
A thought about the site: one thing that was really funny when I first looked at the Python user group page here:
seeing this: "(...) Currently it is the largest Python Programmers user group in the World."
and then this: "Members: 6"
And I just increased the counter by 1 today! :D
Currently I'm not part of ny user groups around here. A shame... But I intend to fix that up as soon as I get to Atlanta! ;)
