115 Empire Street, Providence, RI
The March Geek Dinner will feature a presentation by long-time Providence Geek Tom Hoffman. Tom will present SchoolTool, the open source project he manages, and discuss free software philanthropy. Details here. Tom is a very smart guy, doing important work at the center of the open source movement – yup, you’ll want to be there Wednesday.
Please RSVP in the comments section of this post so that we can give the good folks at AS220 an estimated headcount. And while youâ€™re at it, subscribe to Providence Geeksâ€™ RSS feed (see sidebar) and/or join our very-low-volume email announcement list (for the announcement list, send an email to Jack Templin, jtemplin over at Gmail with your name and affiliation).
As always, for first-timers here are the details on the Geek Dinners:
- Itâ€™s totally casual. Wear whatever, bring whoever, arrive and vamoose wheneverâ€¦ And donâ€™t worry about eating or not â€“ come famished or full â€“ eating is optional, and frankly, the least of the festivities (thatâ€™s not say the food isnâ€™t goodâ€”itâ€™s actually great).
- Topics of conversation will vary as they will at any gathering of geeks, but many of us will be talking about AJAX, mash-ups, start-ups, new devices, innovative business models, interaction design, social computing, digital art, web services, etc. etc. etc.
- Food and beverages are for sale at the adjoining Taqueria Pacifica and bar.
- There is WiFi so bring your connected device of choice.
