I recently came across a relatively new technology of mapping 3D artwork and motion graphics onto buildings, walls, etc. This site has a list of videos will help explain this in more detail. If you are into motion graphics and video work, or just appreciate general coolness, you need to check this out:

I assist with the local Flash Platform Usergroup here in Austin. Adobe provides us with a group site to manage our meetings, discussions, etc., but I recently created a meetup group site to create a better experience for users and for us admins that need to schedule meetings and invite attendees. So far so good.
We have some pretty cool meetups coming up and you can check out the Flash Platform UG site here: http://www.meetup.com/flashaustin/
This meetup is not the same as the Flash Meetup group in Austin, if that makes any sense. We have started to coordinate efforts with them to have better attendance and cooperative efforts.
This month we are having a meeting at SpringBox. Free food, beer and a great topic. Come join us!

I love contests and just found out about another one with Imagineer Systems. They make software for stabilizing, motion tracking video and more. If you own AfterEffects, you own a copy of Mocha for AfterEffects. Mocha for AfterEffects makes easy work of completing complicated tracking, but also can be used with Final Cut or as a standalone product.
The first time you open Mocha you may find a very technical environment that can be intimidating. To make matters worse there are limited resources on the web, except for a few video tutorials with strong accents. If you are familiar with Mocha already, you can help out by signing up for their contest at http://www.imagineersystems.com/contest/
. They have some good prizes and you will be empowering the community.
We also teach a portion of Mocha (sans the strong accents) in our AfterEffects Essential Skills 2 training
