Maptime: open hack night!

Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.

This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.

Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?

Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop!

We also have plenty of bike parking upstairs, so no need to leave your bike at street level.

    de-icing my plane during a snowstorm (in Charlotte, NC!) has resulted in a missed connection in Phoenix, so I'll be landing SFO after 7, bags by 7:30, will head that way on BART and hopefully catch you there for a bit. I'm very interested in sharing maps betwen sectors/regions to map the Solidarity Economy Network and also making it easy for people to map existing and use maps to initiate new Aging in Community projects and services.

      Hi Raines! Tonight we're actually ending Maptime at 8 instead of 8:30; I'm one of the organizers tonight and my belly is making me saaad. So, maybe tonight is a good one to relax and make your way home from the airport. Looking forward to meeting you next week or the week after!
