Discussion: Across the Aisle

Come join us for an engaging topic-centered discussion. Java Vivace will serve you your choice of poison (coffee, tea, beer, wine etc.) and delicious food (unique crepes), while your fellow CFIers will serve up the conversation.

The topic for December is:

Across the Aisle

How do we talk to those with positions different from ourselves?  How different are the different sides?  Every community has its own divisions, how do we acknowledge the similarities with others and differences within our own ranks.


All are welcome. Cost for Non-CFI members: $2. Free for members.

If you would like to suggest future topics or make any other suggestions, please send them to the organizers.

Note: If you RSVP with yes and decide not to attend, please update your RSVP, other people might be waiting.


Discussion Guidelines:

  • Please be respectful.
  • One conversation at a time.
  • Disagreement is to be expected in an interesting conversation.  But if you disagree with a point, please offer a counter argument, or example.  Simply saying "you're wrong" doesn't help further debate.
  • Please allow others to speak, don't dominate the conversation.
  • While it's the moderator's job to steer the conversation, keep it on topic, and give everyone a chance to have their say, it's also a cooperative effort.


Thanks and happy discussing,

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
