San Francisco Meetup

MeFiSF: We'd talked a bit about January 14, and it sounded like some neoFites were on board, too. Is there is momentum? Or shall we just meet in Berkeley at the end of the month?

Hope to see you there - for more details, email's in the profile.

San Francisco Meetup

MeFiSF: LIVING, BREATHING FEMALES on Armistice Day in San Francisco. At least one of whom wears glasses. No location decided, but probably somewhere on the Castro side of the Mission. We have a special guest from LA, so November 11th it is. Come one, come all, celebrate the end of the election season and, perhaps, the start of bets on whether Rehnquist will survive to cast the deciding vote.

San Francisco Meetup

That NY, taunting us with its rich meetup culture! For the less spontaneous, Meetup.com just suggested September 7, and scarabic and I put it on our calendars. Meetup.com also suggested (for SF) Jillian's, which is conveniently located at the Metreon (4th and Mission) but has little else to recommend it. In the past, scarabic has suggested other places, too. How about it?

Bay Area Meetup, July 6, 2004

Bay Area meetup July 6th 8pm. Whaddya say? East Bay? In the city? Going on the board game theme, Albatross in Berkeley's great, but if our numbers get too big, Jupiter's patio might be a better idea. I'm also open for other suggestions in SF. An earlier start time might also be nice.

San Francisco Meetup

Time to put up or shut up. I propose, once and for all, an SF meetup.

More inside, baby. Don't be scared.

There was previously discussion of having a MeFiLA gathering on February 15. Shall we make this happen?

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face: How refreshing it was to see the pictures of the MetaFilter members who recently met for drinks in Los Angeles![Scroll down] Stevis, chacal and y6y6y6 all posted photographs of the group on this thread. It seems to me we're all becoming less anonymous and less cagey about revealing personal information about ourselves. Including real names, zipcodes and even professional details. Phone numbers are quite freely exchanged. Some of us have even started swapping CDs through the mail.

If this impression is correct, I'd like to hear others' opinions on what's changed and what it means. People here seem much more nonchalant about the possibility of being tracked down and checked out - by employers, actual or potential, for instance. Are we relaxing more or is it something else - say, a consequence of harder times or a reappraisal of basic(old-fashioned?) Internet anonymity and multiple-identity ideologies?

Shape government (CA) policy on electroincs resources

My employers, one of two bodies of the California State Legislature, are in the process of putting together an acceptable-use policy for the internal and external dissemination of electronic resources - letterhead, outreach materials, seals, etc. We need to address a lot of different issues: the distribution of materials containing copyrighted materials (for example, an events calendar that uses stock photography or clipart images); the distribution of materials that could be used (illegally) to further a member's campaign for (re)election; the violation of FPPC regulations (for example - if a member of this house is prevented by law from sending, via the US postal service, materials that violate the FPPC - either in content or form - do these rules apply to electronically-disseminated materials? why or why not?) ... Etc. It's a big job, and I'd like to know if any MeFiers have comments / suggestions / resources to share regarding this effort, which will hopefully result in making state state legislature even more accessible, but at the same time not relax controls on finance and campaigns. I thought someone had posted a recent link to a weblog related to e-government policy and the distribution of electornic resources, but I coulnd't find it by searching, so I apologize if this could have been better addressed elsewhere.
