This meetup is about the future of programming -- not in the next year or two but what it will look like in 10 or 20 years. It's about new ideas and fresh approaches.
This isn't meant to be a place you come to be talked to -- it's more like Fight Club, we expect you to fight. You don't have to talk, you don't have to contribute, but you have to consider doing so -- you have to think about what you can add to the group.
We're constantly on the look out for prototypes, research (including academic research) and even talks about previous concepts that maybe you think didn't get enough attention. Like "Papers We Love", this could be considered "Research Ideas We Love".
We'll meet once every few months, when we have something to present or talk about.
