    Amazing. Eye opening. AND: I want to add more humanness to these meetups… I'm not sure what that looks like yet but I'm just noticing it as an intention.

    Excellent group. A very mindful, holistic and motivated community. Noisebridge is the perfect space to host this meetup, since there's a presence of action, rather than just discussion. I look forward to coming back for many more.

    Thanks, Mikey.

    We're looking for a volunteer to shoot video during the meetup. Nothing too fancy. Just making sure no one knocks over the tripod. If you're available please send me a message - would love to hear from you.

      Mickey I'm video producing for­. I'd be interested in taping and talking about our mutual areas of interest. I'm brand new to using meetup.How will we get the sound feed?
