Bris Science

March 23, 2010

I attended BrisScience last night in their new venue, Customs House. The night had a good topic and a good speaker.

I’ve set up a Google calendar for BrisScience to make it easier to remember.

Humbug meta

March 20, 2010

One complaint I often hear about Humbug is how difficult it is to attend our weekend meetings due to our Saturday timetable.

In an attempt to make Humbug a little more accessible I’ve got some week-night room bookings at Brisbane’s Central Library, from six to eight pm.

I’m calling these meetings Humbugmeta for the time being.

These meetings are much shorter than the regular Humbug meetings, so I expect they’ll be different in style.

Plans are very fluid at the moment, possible things to do are:

  • talks
  • workshops
  • computer help
  • presentation practices

As Humbug likes to see itself as an umbrella group, these bookings are available for use by any tech / design / edu group if they need a space for whatever reason. I’m particularly hopeful that groups will use the space for speakers that have a wider audience than their own group.

Wifi should be available to those with a library account.

The actual dates I’ve got booked are:

  • March 24
  • April 29
  • May 14
  • June 21
  • July 22
  • August 25
  • September 22
  • October 28
  • November 25
  • December 22

I’ll be shutting up a little early this Wednesday to attend Pecha Kucha.
