Real people to talk to, to ask, and to learn from are necessary 
indeed. I had some clever and very lazy people around me when I 
started to use Linux. They pointed me to the standard resources again 
and again: man pages, HOWTOs, newsgroups and IRC. A LUG helps a lot 
to adapt to the DIY oriented procedures of acquiring information the 
Free Software approach provides. It can prevent "shortsighted" 
beginners from ignoring them, which is happening far too often.

Good idea.
