Comment (by dimadin):

 This is something we talked in Serbian community. We would like to have
 all events from Serbia listed for every request with Serbian IP or city
 name. I guess that some other countries have other requests too.

 Although @coreymckrill examples make sense, they do not apply to most
 places since everyone has different customs. For example, I guess that
 some countries do not want all meetups in country but want all WordCamps
 in country, or other want all meetups and want WordCamps in neighboring

 Another thing is that radius from IP location doesn't make sense in most
 of the world because it is not correct. For example, I get Belgrade which
 is 200km away. That means I will not see meetups from Niš which is 40km
 away. You can see this if you look at any site analytics report: visits
 are mostly placed in a few large cities even though people visit from all
 over the country.

 My suggestion is to make several search templates and leave to local
 communities to decide which one makes sense in their country. So when API
 gets request, it first checks if there is anything for that country, if
 not, fallback to default search.
