A long while back, maybe five years ago, we attempted to do this with 
NYCBUG. . . . create a central database of NYC-area BSD using companies.

With such a vague goal, ie, determining BSD-using firms for the sake of 
it, it's difficult.

If you actually explain what your goal is, it might be a bit easier to 
provide some direction. . .


are you looking to apply for dev/sa jobs?

are you cataloging BSD-based hardware solutions?

do you have a service to provide to those firms?
