Wishing there was a local R User's group in your area, but can't find one? New user groups are springing up all the time, but you can kickstart the process by registering interest for a group in your area at meetup.com. As you can see from the map below, there's interest in many places -- your vote could prompt an R user in your locality to set up a new group (or you could always start one yourself!).
