Thought that maybe some of you would be interested in this. Would be
good to get a solid FLOSS perspective in the group, in my opinion.
It doesn't appear that they have any physical meetups, instead just a
bunch of google web resources to join (friendconnect, etc).

> After the 2009 Google I/O Conference, Google began an aggressive
> campaign to kick start Google Technology User Groups (GTUG). I decided
> that it was an interesting idea and have begun to lay the framework to
> set up the Michigan GTUG. Since the group has been announced on a few
> other mailing lists, we are currently at 24 members. Google has a
> wealth of developer technologies currently available and they seem to be
> releasing something new almost every month lately. I think that there
> is an excellent pool of technology to draw from to make for a very
> interesting user group.
> Some of the developer technologies that I could envision being covered
> by the group include:
> * Android <http://code.google.com/android/>
> * Google APIs (Maps, YouTube, Search, etc)
> * Google Friend Connect <http://www.google.com/friendconnect/>
> * Google Web Toolkit (GWT) <http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/>
> * Google App Engine <http://code.google.com/appengine/>
> * OpenSocial <http://www.opensocial.org/>
> * Google Wave <http://wave.google.com/>
> **A nice thing about these technologies is that most of them support
> multiple languages and thus the group should attract a diverse audience
> with differing backgrounds. This will be great for knowledge sharing
> and collaboration throughout the area. Google also promises to support
> the GTUGs and have offered a "swag" package for the first meeting.
