Meetup with Carl Malamud
Some of you may have seen the BoingBoing post recently about Carl Malamud’s upcoming testimony before Congress as part of his work at public.resource.org digitizing government information. He’s also not surprisingly a fairly active poster on Twitter and mentioned his upcoming trip to DC.
This got some of us thinking about asking Carl if he’d be willing to join us for a meetup. As it happens, Carl liked the idea and would be able to meet with anyone who wants to join us next Thursday, the 17th, at Capital City Brewing at Union Station starting at 6:30PM.
I realize this is short notice but what I need from you is a quick note letting me know if you’ll be there so I can get a head count as soon as possible and can look into get a reservation for a large table ahead of time.
You can comment on this post, respond to the Facebook event, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you’ll be able to make it.
Given the upcoming holidays, I’m also going to suggest that this serve
in lieu of our December gatheringl, barring any objections.
Please RSVP ASAP!
