October 2018 meetup

NS Nick S Public Seen by 203

Date: Monday October 29th
When: 6pm until ~9ish
Where: the Shrub's office at 17 Guthrie Street (map)
What: we plan to watch "Building Communities of Commons. A documentary on DIY networks at Sarantaporo, Greece.", duration ~1h

This is topical since there was a MAZI project wifi-networking workshop and symposium at Summerhall last week. @pennytravlou was there, and she says should be able to make it to the meeting too.

I'll bring some beer and wine, and there should be tea and coffee available too. There'll be a donations box to help cover the cost of these; also the Shrub have a suggested donation of £1/person/hour.

Now on GetTogether (a federated Meetup.com alternative):

I could do that

Hey, Oct 29th is good for me.

On the topic of community mesh networks there's a Mazi wifi zone event coming up: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/reception-mazi-do-it-yourself-technologies-for-action-and-empowerment-tickets-50570640146


Nick S Thu 18 Oct 2018 9:17AM

Ok, let's do the 29th as proposed then. I'll speak to people at the SHRUB and see what physically needs to happen to use the projector.

I see that the Mazi drinks reception is today, 5-7pm. Anyone else going? I might be able to make that.


Penny Travlou Thu 18 Oct 2018 3:33PM

Hi Nick, I am at the Mazi symposium and will stay for drinks. So let me know if you are also going to be there as well as anyone else from the group here.


Nick S Thu 18 Oct 2018 4:20PM

Unfortunately I have now committed to do domestic stuff!


Simon Grant Thu 18 Oct 2018 4:25PM

I won't be coming this time, maybe another time, though! Hope you have a good one.


Nick S Thu 18 Oct 2018 10:35PM

Thanks! Confess I wasn't expecting you to, although you'd be welcome.


Simon Grant Sat 20 Oct 2018 8:43AM

I didn't imagine you were expecting me, @wulee but I did have such an interesting time with you last month that the prospect is very tempting sometime!


Nick S Sat 27 Oct 2018 2:18PM

Ok, so I had some trouble getting confirmation that we can use the Shrub's venue at Guthrie Street, but with some help from @ollienathan I think we're good to go. I'll update the topic accordingly in a moment.


Nick S Sat 27 Oct 2018 8:08PM

As an experiment I've added a recurring GetTogether meetup for this group, on the last Monday of the month here:


GetTogether is an open source (and free as in beer) alternative to Meetup.com, which promises to federate with ActivityPub at some point.
