Darwin, Online Surveys, and Ambiguous Affect

I was doing some research on AI and came accross one of the most bizarre and fascinating things I've seen in a long time.

Take the test, it's for a good cause.  What do you think about the use of autosuggest here? What do you think about the use of electrodes!?!?!?

Is this local group still active?

I've been wondering whether web professionals can attain a level of camaraderie and inspiration on a local level, as graphic designers find in AIGA... and I'd love to see some more organization in the Los Angeles area. Does anyone else feel the same way?

We've already got some great local event series which incorporate multiple disciplines – like Creative Mornings and de LaB – but perhaps there's something more we can do to unite interactive specialists? Is there anywhere else you've been finding local connections?
