2 days' notice is not entirely reasonable, here.

RULE 4: If you make the announcement, you have to go, you have to be
     on time and preferably early, and you have to make a little sign
     that says "BAD" so people know where they're supposed to sit.

Speaking for myself and no one else: I'm not really interested in going
to get together with other geeks face-to-face and then hopping online.
It's like having a LAN party and then getting everyone on IRC -- what's
the point? :)

Also, just a hint from the perspective of one of the more mean-tempered
geeks in the world: The buzzwords and gibberish start to sound like a
bad Zippy impersonation pretty quickly. This is not the sort of thing
that is easy to handle in anything but the smallest of doses.
