Sorry, I'm a little confused: what network of user groups? What's a user group?

I think you're on the right track here... a decentralized mash up
would be better and cooler.

I'm still a little confused on the overall idea. However, it sounds
interesting. Developing a convention/technique sounds like the right
idea. I would suggest not looking for people using "usergroup" as a
tag. I would suggest looking for examples of people doing similar use
cases. Perhaps you could elaborate a bit more on the use case you are
trying to facilitate?
