Maptime: show and tell night!

It's show-and-tell night at Maptime! Bring your projects at whatever stage they're at (finished, in-progress, unformed idea) and get friendly, supportive feedback from the rest of the group. 

About Maptime:

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.

      Regarding the exploratorium event, they told us it's sold out, but we are still trying to get more seats opened up. Stay tuned.

    Hi everyone! I started a google doc with some notes on the show & tell night for a blog post. Please feel free to fill in what I missed. Also, if the turnip story intro is too much, we can take it out. ;)
