I think MLB was the closest...
Bubble bee is a little side project that grew out of a need PLUG had where they were having issues finding speakers. I started thinking that it nice if there was an easy way to see what other groups in you area were doing and to possibly get speakers from those groups to come to your group. For instance, there may be topics presented to PLUG that are relevant to Rails users and vise versa. It was originally targeted to Open Source Software Groups but then I realized that that might be too constricting...for example, if the rails group wanted a speaker to come talk about progressive enhancement.
So essentially, it is upcoming or meetup with a twist that consists of making it easier to "cross-pollinate" by getting speakers to give good talks to more than one kind of group and also have mixed events where more than one group gets together to hear presentations from several groups about a common topic.
There are a couple of key features: *Aggregated ical feed of all of the events of all of the groups you belong to (because I hate going to different websites to add them to my calendar myself) *Browse through presentations to other groups and suggest or invite them to your group *Organize Town Hall meetings
Along with some of the assumed features: *exportable RSVP list *Add/edit groups, sponsors, meeting locations *Add/edit/delete events/segments
I was originally going to release it June 1 in all of it's drabness, but then I hired a graphics guy so we are going to spend another month or two polishing it up and playing with some ideas. The first version is going to have zero ajaxy goodness because I really want to get something out there that works and then keep refining it or even change directions some if people use it differently than what I expected.
Any feedback would be appreciated :-)

That was far too elaborate to be a joke :-D
