Actually, the name of that Linux user group[1] is CABAL (old in-joke).
Being named "CABAL" since its 1997 founding at a Linux-based Internet 
cafe in SOMA, that LUG's logical choice of name for its _mailing list_
was therefore Conspire (started in mid-2000 using Majordomo, then
converted over to GNU Mailman in Dec. 2000).  Get it?


[1] Sure, we do BBQ (since, aside from that and free parking, what else
are the suburbs good for? ;->  ), but it's also a full-blown real,
meets-regularly-and-everything user group and twice-monthly installfest.
