Personally I haven't found Meetup.com to be invasive for the (board
gaming-oriented) group I'm in, though it's not free of charge for the
organizers (it is for attendees). Then again, it's not oriented toward
occasional/casual visitors to a one-time event, and is better suited to
long-term recurring events with lots of regulars in addition to hopefully new
people. In other words, I wouldn't think it's the right answer for either NYLUG
or SFC NYC. I second the desire for some free-as-in-freedom software to handle
