Let's have a Peer Garden!

Hey everyone - since there's already dozens of people in the group, I'd like to propose a social to learn about each other's interests to discover commonalities, new ideas and varying perspectives in a truly peer-to-peer environment.

What is your take on distributed technology and peer-to-peer concepts? What draws you to become a part of this group and what do you want to get out of it? Bring those thoughts and more as we jumpstart this dynamic conversation for a better understanding of present and future technology. 

Have a better location for the next Peer Garden? Bring suggestions and feedback!

    Enjoyed the discussion and meeting everyone. I'll have to catch up on the SOTA on mesh networking. How about next time having it at a facility where you could give us the Open Garden pitch?

    A tiny bit more structure woulda been nice. Very cool though. I'd go again in a heart beat

      We can definitely experiment with more structure. Maybe something like discussion groups on varying topics? If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

    I had a good time and really appreciated meeting some people from Open Garden and the decentralize community in general. Will definitely attend again. Another good meetup spot might be Churchill @Church&Market.

    Enjoyed chatting with everyone. Next time, I'll wear more than a beer coat to keep me warm.

      Oops! Sorry to miss you... looking into a more secluded spot for next time. :)

    I'm standing at a table in the back. Look for dreads! Bring a jacket if you get cold easily like me! :)

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!! I'll be collecting ideas for future events so make sure to bring 'em if you've got 'em!

    I'm sad to miss this one, but am looking forward to hearing how it goes and meeting you all at the next!

    I think we're going to get most of the Open Garden team to come by this one, too! :D

    It would be fun to host at our office, but getting to Treasure Island during rush hour (especially from SF-side) is... long, sometimes very long.

    hehe, peer garden at biergarten.. I got confused at first, a peer garden is a community garden!

    September 12, 2013

    • Paige

      Hm... I've never heard that to describe a community garden - hopefully not too may folks get confused! Peer garden is definitely suppose to be a play on beer garden. ;)

      I think I'm the oddball here :)
