When: Tuesday, 09 December 2008 @ 8:30 PM
Where: HacDC (St. Stephen & The Incarnation Church, 1525 Newton St NW, Washington DC)
In our first Tuesday Seminar Series, Dorkbot DC overlords and brand new HacDC Members Gareth Branwyn and Alberto Gaitán will join fellow HacDC Members Katie Bechtold (DC Linux Chix) and Nick Farr (hackerspaces.org) in a conversation on building the DC Tech Community.
This is the first of a series of Tuesday Seminars designed to help bring local geeks, dorks, makers and hackers closer together. Taking place most Tuesdays at 8:30 PM when Dorkbot is not in session, HacDC’s TSS will feature a wide range of topics and interactive opportunities of general interest to DC’s finest hackers. (It also helps HacDC make sure its member meetings end on time.)
This Tuesday’s TSS builds on our previous community-building conversation, Birthing Hydra, which took place during HacDC’s “Grand Opening Week”. Following a seminar format, we hope to arrive at a framework of common strategies for:
- Building and maintaining the “organizing infrastructure” of DC’s tech community.
- Creating and cultivating more attractive social and collaborative gatherings and spaces.
- Reaching out to future community members and connecting our disparate pockets of activity.
