WHAT NOW? Digital minimalists are all around us. They’re the calm, happy people who can hold long conversations without furtive glances at their phones. They can get lost in a good book, a woodworking project, or a leisurely morning run. They can have fun with friends and family without the obsessive urge to document the experience. They stay informed about the news of the day, but don’t feel overwhelmed by it. They don’t experience “fear of missing out” because they already know which activities provide them with meaning and satisfaction.
This event is inspired by the book by Cal Newport called 'Digital Minimization' I highly recommend you pick up a copy!
This event isn't about removing technology from our lives, it is about regaining balance with our technology and using it in a responsible way :)
Enjoy a brief talk on how to be a digital minimalist,
the benefits and detailing a plan of action.

BUT WAIT... WHAT ARE WEB BOTS? An internet bot, also known as web robot, WWW robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone.
PART ONE: Pizza patio time (Weather permitting).
PART TWO: Bot building challenge! All skill levels are welcome ;) Winner will receive a sweet gift card :)
PART THREE: Drinking and merriment, what more could you ask for?? ^__^

Unix Epoch time, the start of time for all unix-based systems. Early Unix engineers picked that date arbitrarily, because they needed to set a uniform date for the start of time, and New Year's Day, 1970, seemed most convenient. Let's celebrate 1,600,000,000 seconds since the start of that mythical date aka the DAWN OF COMPUTER TIME! Drinks, merriment, and good company, what more can you ask for!? Don't delay, RSVP today!
1,600,000,000 seconds occurs on:
