If people are interested in that stuff, searching for "continuous 
delivery" or "continuous integration" or similar throws up quite a lot 
of existing groups on meetup.com:

There's even an existing NYC Jenkins meetup group: 
http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Jenkins-Meetup/ -- or are those the people you 
talked to?

Just wondering: is the idea really to restrict this only to Jenkins, or 
would general talks on build/test automation/continuous 
integration/delivery meet the definition?

I ask since it seems like (in all but the largest cities) where there 
are meetup groups, it's quite hard to keep momentum going by constantly 
finding new topics and speakers on a semi-regular basis -- all the more 
so when the meetup topic is more niche.

In any case, I'll be interested to hear the ideas and the outcome, as 
Fred G and I met up last month in Cologne and discussed something 
similar.. :)
