Also, September 22 is OneWebDay, so we'll be celebrating the web as an open and inclusive tool that works for everyone.http://onewebday.org/
NetSquared Montreal is sponsored by our wonderful venue Station C. Station C is the first and most stylish coworking space in Montreal. If you work at home and need somewhere more professional to get stuff done it's an affordable and easy solution. They love social change, and we love them.http://station-c.com/
ATOMS & BITS
This edition of the Montreal NetSquared Meetup is also part of a global festival called Atoms & Bits taking place in several cities in Europe as well as Montreal. Other Montreal events include a WordPress meetup (about the popular blogging platform) and the probably-complete PodCamp montreal that happened this weekend.
From their website: "atoms&bits are the smallest elements in our modern society. This is what the atoms&bits Festival is all about: how we change society bit by bit, atom by atom ? organized through the Internet with real world results. a&b is a meet up for visionaries, tinkerers, activists, geeks, and artists ? in short, everyone that celebrates a new culture of collective endeavor and do-it-yourself."
