So.... monthly September Dallas meetup?

Maybe there was one already but I just missed it since I haven't been checking the irl page, but if we haven't already done so I'd like to propose a meetup for the month of September. Let's try not to give up too early on the monthly meetup idea. Even if we end up doing it in early October or something we can count it for September.

Superhuman exhibit at the Wellcome Collection

Kattullus and myself both happen to be in London for the weekend. There's already a full-packed Saturday plan, but for those who can't make it or know they won't be able to get enough MeFites IRL, come join us on Friday! We are planning on meeting outside the Wellcome Collection at 1pm, to check out the Superhuman exhibit. Food and drink will likely happen afterwards. [more inside]

Wanted: great minds to discuss ideas.

Time to meet, discuss, and solve world problems. Political discussion a must, science discussion a must, knitting discussion is optional.

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall

98.1034 Bottles of Beer on the Wall provides drunken encounters with compulsive systems. A program continually preens itself, inserting lines of code to change its visual representation, but along the way, introducing glitches and new patterns of behavior. A therapist program tries to dispense advice as her logic slowly breaks down. Sound editing software turns simple geometric shapes into hallucinatory landscapes. Photoshop generates intricate patterns in an attempt to hide visual compression. A book displays the abuses and absurdities of the DNS system, an addressing apparatus that has seemingly exhausted meaningful combinations of English words. [more inside]

Brooklyn. Weekly. Declarative. Meetup.

It's been a week. The 4th Ave Pub. Not really sure what a declarative sentence is. English education woefully lacking.

Main Line Philly + Beer?!

OCTOBER 10th, Tired Hands! Hello, Main Line! Well, Jessypie has been doing an amazing job organizing meetups in Philly, but I know I'm not the only one out here on the ol' R5.

Are other MeFis into these things? [more inside]

The Hip-Hop Debate.

The one and only hip hop debate, where we argue the pro's and the con's til the break-a break-a dawn. Watch freestylers take your suggestions and debate the relative merits of time travel, zoos, Cats: The Musical, and anything else you can think of. I'll personally be laying down the beats. And you... you can jump up on stage with us and take a shot at the crown! [more inside]

NYC Honey Festival!

I will be working at the NYC Honey Festival at the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk this Saturday. It just occurred to me to post it here. Come take advantage of one of the few remaining nice Saturdays of 2012! And get free samples of local honey, and drink locally-brewed beer with honey in it, and check out a honey extraction and glassed-in observation hive! And probably listen to me geek out about varroa mite mitigation techniques!

In London from 27 Sept - 1 Oct...let's meet!

The London meetups are shapin' up! Plans for Friday are here; this is the Saturday thread. Please feel free to simply show up to any/all of this fun. Let's start with the Science Museum at 1pm. We'll meet right out front, here. Then roughly about 4pm, let's head over to Taqueria for Mexican food, here. Then off to begin the pub crawl, starting at 6pm at The Slaughtered Lamb, here.
This is a google map of the day.

Original post: I'll be in London from 27 Sept (Thursday) - 1 Oct (Monday), mostly at the London International Tattoo Convention. I'm open to doing and seeing other things as well...schedule is fairly open. At the very least, let's do a meetup. And if anybody would like to join me at the convention, that'd be great too. Or something else fun. (Updated meetup details within) [more inside]
