Café News Fall Season Premiere!

  • Sep 6, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for this exciting inaugural event!  Make history and be one of the first attendees at Café News!

The articles will be selected and announced several days before the meetup.  For each meetup, we'll select and discuss the following two articles.

1) The organizers' pick: "Social Media and the ‘Spiral of Silence'’' by Pew Research Internet Project — the article can be accessed by clicking here.

_________________________________________

2) The members' pick:  the second article was selected based a popular vote via online poll.  The topic is the current military conflict in Ukraine -- click here to access the article.

The group will meet on the second floor at the Café, as shown in the photo.

    Thanks to everyone for attending and sharing your views! We had a near perfect attendance yesterday, but more importantly, the discussions were robust and very engaging. We'll do this again soon!

      Hi Thomas, I'm going to be a bit late, arriving between 3:30 - 4pm. But I will be coming!

      No problem, we'll be up on the second floor -- look for a large group with the meetup table sign.

    Hi everyone -- if you cannot attend tomorrow, kindly adjust your RSVP status. There are 13 members waiting for a spot and this will give them a chance to attend.

    The poll is now closed and we have a clear winner for the second topic: military tensions in Ukraine. Both articles are now ready for your perusal!

    What's the topic of the first article we'll discuss? Busy last week, so I didn't catch it. Thanks!

    Hope everyone had a nice long weekend! Our first meetup is this Saturday and many of you haven't voted for the second article yet. Please take a few moments to register your vote via online poll: http://www.meetup.com/cafe-news/polls/1141552/

      Hi Ellen,

      The main purpose behind this group is that we discuss two articles for each meetup. In order to have a dynamic and engaging discussion, it is strongly urged that the attendees read both articles. The articles are not very lengthy and it only took me about 15 minutes to read the first one. While voting for the second article is not mandatory, we encourage it so that more members feel engaged. Hope this answers your question.

      1 · September 2, 2014

    • thomas

      Only seven of the 18 members have voted for the second article -- I think we can do a little better. I'll extend the poll for an additional day. It only takes a moment to register your vote. http://www.meetup.com...­
