Southern Fried Tech

I just like the name: Southern Fried Tech. It's one of those names that makes you smack your forehead with a "why didn't I think of that?" The stated purpose from the website is:
The purpose of Southern Fried Tech is to increase the size and the strength of the technology and new media community in the Southeastern United States.
I certainly applaud any efforts to build up the technology community in Atlanta. This town seems dominated by larger, more established shops that consume the greater portion of the talent. If my friends have it right, much of that talent is being wasted on projects that are not exactly cultural tsunamis. (Better billing system for Verizon? Yawn.)
