Penguicon is a combination scifi convention and open source conference that's been running annually for 15 years. I'm a guest of honor at Penguicon 2017 (my schedule), as is MeFi's own Cory Doctorow (schedule) and Ada Palmer (schedule) whose work's been discussed on MetaFilter several times. Other speakers include MeFi's own John Scalzi. [more inside]
So, last meetup we talked about doing another one this summer, before I leave town. So, Friday Aug 15 at 5 pm in the Ann Arbor Beer Garden. There's food right next door at Mark's Carts so we might be over there, and if it rains, check this space for alternate plans. [more inside]
Update: we will meet at Top of the Park, unless it's rained out, in which case we'll meet at Silvios on North U. [more inside]
Currently rescheduled again for March 1. Details have changed: Now we are going to Pizza Bigalora. Hope to see some of you there at 5pm March 1. [more inside]
