Communitree - community based public art

I’ve been commissioned by the Street Art Fair and AnnArbor.com to do a community based public art project. We’re growing a tree out of recycled cables. How will this work and how can you be involved? The tree will be a sculpture using recycled and repurposed materials with community help in making it grow. I’m building an armature out of a repurposed lab stool and metal posts, old window sash weights and other found objects. The tree will be fleshed out using old computer, phone and electrical cables and that’s where you come in. I need your old phone cords (coiled ones are great!), computer cables and the like. If you’re like me you probably have a box of them somewhere. You can drop them off at the Art Fair Office at 721 E. Huron St., Suite 200, Ann Arbor, MI 48104 734-994-5260 (PH) or at AnnArbor.com at 301 E. Liberty St., First Floor. If you know me you can get in touch with me. [more inside]

Hey, moonbird and I are coming to Savannah for a couple of days. Granted, those days are a Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (we're leaving Wednesday) but we'd still love to get together for drinks or dinner or something along those lines! We're staying downtown at the delightfully named Thunderbird Inn & planning on mostly walking. Anywhere y'all recommend is great; we're easy to please and don't know the city at all.

Whiskey Wednesday at the Fountainhead

Because July 6th is weeks away, and because at least one noted member of the cabal* prefers whiskey to beers, let's meet at Fountainhead on Wednesday, June 22.

Kthxbi's Seattle Wedding Reception

I got myself up and married about a week ago in the midwest and we're having a Seattle wedding reception this weekend in the Lower Woodland Park. It's going to be a big potluck filled with people from UW and the two big software shops in town and I'd love if some of you can make it too. It probably wouldn't be very great in terms of a meetup meetup because there will (hopefully) be like 100 other people there, but since I've met a lot of you through past meetups, consider yourselves invited!

Hello! Having recently moved to San Francisco (with some help from MeFi), I thought it would be fun to meet fellow MeFites in the area and other transplants to this lovely city.
