Next NYC meetup August 2nd at betaworks.
Excellent workshop, hosted by Giancarlo Pitocco, about how to cultivate a healthier, more balanced relationship with your personal technology. Not to be missed.
Hey all! Really exciting meetup this Thursday in NYC. Solon Barocas (from Cornell Tech) talking about how discrimination is designed into tech and what we can do about it!
Come one, come all (details on meetup website. Hosted at Betaworks in meatpacking district!)
Meetups are best when there is action. Generally it’s not a good idea to arrange a meetup where there is talking and listening around a single subject. Doing that formulates learning as passive process. You already have the context for your meetup which is really simple: To actually meet up. Some of you will be thinkers, others writers, perhaps a few photographers and videographers and maybe a few tech nerds. Come up with a vision, a mental image that energizes all of you, a campaign, a theme, movement, call it whatever you want. Set your mind to locating and identifying the people with the appropriate skills that will move your closer to materializing that vision. Basically, get to work and never forget to play. Any more detail than this, I’d be telling you what to do and I am not in position to do that. Cheers.
Yes, very well said. This is also how we are thinking of re-energizing our meetup acitivities. Have a talk, sure, but also have interactivity, conversation, getting to know each other.
Meetups as places of action, for an active community that generates awareness and solutions. E.g. via hackathons and Idea: Global Awareness Hackathon to boost Awareness Campaigns project, jumpstart crowdsourcing
Hello NYC peeps! I wanted to invite you all to my first (and second) pop-up events with my business TTYL. As a fully realized idea, it’s a social club in NYC where no phones are allowed and it’s full of board games, coloring, beer/wine, music and live entertainment. Right now, I have joined forces with The Phluid Project, a clothing store in Soho and a bar in Brooklyn. The first event is on January 18th at The Phluid Project and the 2nd is on February 14th at DSK bar in Brooklyn. I would love to see you all at one or both!
