I also set up http://groups.google.com/group/hacker-news-reads-sicp for arranging discussion times and any other miscellaneous things if needed.
I have a couple books (signal processing, compilers, programmable logic) that I'd really like to work through with a couple people; what I really want to do is get together every other week or so over beers in Chicago, though.
Designed for exactly this kind of scenario, and recently launched.
I'm pretty sure http://www.librarything.com fulfills this need though.
You can probably create a "Chicago Hacker Meetup" and start scheduling meetings.
Otherwise, everyone will completely forget.
Anyone have a quick service that allows folks to create a very simple and small email list of folks?

It takes you more step-by-step than SICP and once you get more practice with those books, SICP will be much more paletable.
That would be great, so count me in if it happens.
My email is chris.m.conley at the goog.
