I noticed that a lot of people on this thread haven't filled in the "location" field of their ID. Doing so (even if you just give state or country level) might help you find friends because others can say things like, "Hey, are you anywhere near X? I know there's a good group there."
It helps more generally, too. The problems of a sole practitioner in, say, Timbuktu, will be far different from those of someone in, say, Pisa.
