Message from Boing Boing:

We are excited to announce Boing Boing's 1st International Meetup Day!

The theme is "Wonderful Things." The goal is for happy mutants in cities around the world to self-organize various cabinets of curiosities.

It's easy to participate: Start by visiting the Meetup page to join or start a "Wonderful Things" Meetup in your city. On June 7, bring your favorite significant object, coveted curiosity, conversation piece, or mysterious item to the Meetup (Don't bring something that has a lot of intrinsic value). Then tell the other happy mutants about it!

While you're at the Meetup, share your thoughts on the items that you see, and if you are so inclined, offer up a swap! Don't forget to tweet your photos, videos, and details on any exciting swaps using hashtag #BoingBoingMUP.

For more information, visit http://boingboing.net/2011/05/12/boing-boings-1st-int.htm...­.

Have fun! -- Mark Frauenfelder and the gang from Boing Boing.

    This is Maggie Koerth-Baker from BoingBoing. I just wanted to let this community know that there is a very good chance (90% right now, I'd say) that Minneapolis will have a BoingBoing Day in the Park later this Summer ... like they did in San Francisco last year. So if you can't make it to this (and I may or may not be able to) don't worry. There will be another chance to get together with Happy Mutants in the Twin Cities.

      Awesome! Weekdays are hard for me, so a weekend day later in the summer would be perfect.

    Good news, Happy Mutants. I've just received word that your first drink is on BoingBoing. By the way, I will have a sign with me tonight, so look for that. If you can't see the sign, look for the six foot redhead.

    Not *certainly* coming, but want to--much depends upon traffic.

    I wish I could go, but lack of funds or transportation means I will not be able to this time.

    If anyone has a suggestion for another place to meet up, let me know. Otherwise, I'll see you at Sea Salt! I will be carrying a sign!
