This week's topic is Projects. Bring a project (a website, a story, a knitting project, a business plan, or anything else...) and we'll co-work.
At the beginning we'll each talk about what we're working on. You can choose to work on your own, or to team up with others if you'd like to learn about their work or offer help. There's sometimes one room for quiet work and one for talking and collaboration.
There's a primary election coming up, so maybe we'll talk ballots! I haven't seen anything local and the state/national looks very simple, so probably not all night.
We explicitly encourage people to split off from the main conversation or diverge from the topic if that would be more fun for them (moving side conversations into a separate part of the space if appropriate). Meetup topics are here as a tool to facilitate fun interaction, and we certainly don’t want them to inhibit it.
Everyone is welcome. Yes, that includes you, if you're reading this. We meet at 6:15, but the official topic doesn't start until 6:45 to accommodate stragglers, and even later arrivals are also welcome. RSVPs are never required.
The North Oakland meetup is intended as a fun, low-key social space with some structured interaction, where new and non-new community members can mingle and have interesting conversations. Everyone is welcome, and RSVPs are never required.
We meet every Tuesday in Oakland at 6:15, with a rotating variety of topics but don’t generally start the meetup topic until 6:45-7:00 to accommodate stragglers. Often there is a food delivery order that goes out before we start the meetup topic.
