Meetups: compete!

Hey, all you JS, HTML5 and developer meetups... following up yesterday's announcement, today I'm starting up a competition between all the meetups.

Here's how it will work: After you've backed this project, leave a comment here with the name/city of your meetup that you represent. Any meetup who gets 10 comments here from backers, I will agree to do a remote talk at that meetup. If any (US only!) meetup gets 75 backers claimed here in the comments, I will pay my own way to come do an in-person talk at that meetup!

All you have to do is make sure to spread the word through tweets, emails, and mentions at your meetup this month, and make sure to tell people when they back the project to leave the meetup name/city here in a comment. That's it! Super easy, huh?

Here's a suggested tweet:
