The reason for starting a lisp user group is so that people who like
Lisp can get together and talk about it.  Model airplanes, falconry,
creative anachronisms, and old coins aren't used in industry, and in
fact don't have much practical application at all, but there are still
groups of people who meet to discuss them.
