Local jQuery UI team member Richard D. Worth has kicked off a couple of local jQuery meetup groups in our area, so if you enjoy working with jQuery, and want to spend some time with your peers, either learning more, or sharing what you know (or both), you should check them out:

They’re just getting started, so if you want to get in on the ground floor, and help out as a speaker, organizer, etc., now is a great time for that.

And if you’re not in the DC area, there are many other jQuery meetup groups available, so there may be one in your area as well.
