NO MEETING tonight, 2007/06/28


There will not be a meeting tonight (unless people want to organize one in the comments or on the list). Erica is wiped out after a week of conference & meetings, and we have not set a topic or guest. See you all next week for a special “beer & blogs” at the Cambridge Common.
Upcoming events of interest:

  • See the Berkman Calendar for upcoming Berkman stuff.
  • Feel free to publicize related events here! Let Erica or j know, comment, or add them yourself if you have an editor account.

Various upcoming & potential stuff on our schedule:

  • July 5 – beer & blogs at the Cambridge Common
  • July 12, 19, 26 – possible summer hiatus or cool guest speakers?
    • Erica is unavailable to lead meetings these weeks
    • j has an online commitment each of those weeks from 6-8 p. She could possibly be present at the blog meetings, but not able to lead any meetings.
  • August 9 – Local-based media extravaganza, led by Lisa Williams. Will be awesome.
  • Second Life – 1) a guided tour + how-to session | 2) a debate on it. Good? Bad? Both?
