I would be interested in meeting other Lisp (incl. Scheme) users in Albuquerque, New Mexico. If that describes you, shoot me an email at: email@example.com. If you send me spam, my spam filters should catch it, if not, thanks for the material for further training my spam filters. :P I'm hoping that the search engines will catch this and you might find me :)
