NetSquared Camp: Downunder

In November, NetSquared groups in Adelaide, Auckland, Melbourne and Wellington will be teaming up for the first “NetSquared (virtual) camp: downunder.”

NetSquared Camp: Downunder will be a live event with a difference. Each city will host a presenter who will be live-streamed online, with audiences in all four cities tuning in.

What is a NetSquared Camp?

NetSquared Camps are being run all around the globe to bring people together to collaborate on projects. Our project? A regional meetup using online streaming and tools we have on hand. Not only will it be a good test to see if our tech manages, but it will be a great way to meet people from meetups in other cities.

Join us in-person, in Wellington

Join us in person at a venue in inner city Wellington and hear from our own local speaker and from the speakers in the other cities.

This is going to be a unique NetSquared event and will showcase some of the great stuff happening in Australia and New Zealand.

Join us online

We're broadcasting the event via YouTube Live. At appointed hour, go to:  http://www.connectingup.org/net2downunder

    Hi I'm sorry I won't be able to make tonight. I live out of town and didn't see that it finished at 10 pm. It's been a heavy week. I was keen to hear everyone esp Loomio and Start Some Good! I'll check out the recording, thanks. Good luck and hope it all goes well!

      Hiya Charlotte. Thanks for letting us know. The event doesn't actually finish that late - I'll reckon we'll be winding up at 9ish. For some reason Meetup decided we'd finish at 10. Just so you know, as well as a recording, we're livestreaming via http://www.connecting...­

    Great initiative Stephen. I am in Sydney that day and could join in there - aren't they involved ?

      Yes, you'll definitely be able to join in via YouTube streaming. Details will be circulated closer to the time. Part of the aim is to find others in region keen to consider running a local group under #net2 umbrella - if you come across anyone you think could take this forward in Sydney, suggest they get in touch.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
