[SASAG] Does SASAG as it exists now have value to anyone?

It is a challenge for /any/ org whose main draw is 'local meetups and
lectures' to maintain an active community today in the time of COVID.
I've also noticed the various IRC channels getting quieter and quieter -
whether that's folks being a bit too focused on 'life in The
Outside(tm)' or indicative of a dead/depleted membership is up for
debate. However, an argument could also be made that, in these times,
the whole 'fire up an IRC client' thing is just enough friction to keep
otherwise-interested folks at bay.
In the interest of reducing friction, and accepting that many
dayjob-type orgs are on Slack these days, I'd like to extend an invite
to the Devops Engineers Slack community at http://s.bl-1.com/h/cSjD1kFh?url=https://devopsengineers.com
The community is moderated (I'm one of the mods!), healthily active,
and is a good mix of tech-focused conversation and fun nonsense.
Slack-the-software certainly has its flaws (non-open, limited history
for non-paying accounts, owned/controlled by a central company, etc),
but "friction" isn't one of them. I love IRC, I intend on staying
logged in with it, etc, but I also enjoy occasional community-focused
chat where I don't have to constantly re-login to my IRC bouncer, among
other minor headaches.
Anyway, if any of the LOPSA/SASAG folk are interested - c'mon in, the
water's fine. Hope to see you there, or on the IRC channel, or even
(dare I say it...) in The Outside(tm) sometime soon!
