We're organizing the first meeting of New York City Computer Anonymous <
http://computeranonymous.org/> group. Computer Anonymous is a group that
allows socially conscious people who are interested in technology. In the
words of the linked page, "it is not an entrepreneurial meetup, nor is it
networking: It is a support group, a place to meet good people and talk
about good and bad things."
The first meeting is scheduled for October 29 at 6:30 PM at Pacific
Standard, in Brooklyn, NY. More info can be found here: <
http://computeranonymous.org/us_newyork.html>. If you'd like to RSVP,
follow the instructions on that page or contact me on- or off-list.
A few more words of encouragement from the Computer Anonymous site: If
you’re from a background which isn’t well-represented in most geeky
meetups, come along – we want to make a difference. If you’re from a
background which is well-represented in most geeky meetups, come along – we
want your help making a difference. If you’re worried about not being
computer enough, come. If you think you’re an imposter, come. If your day
job isn’t code, come. This isn’t a group of experts, just people. We are
interested in the social and technical problems. This is a support group.
No-one knows what they are doing .
