All are welcome to our events--we invite artists, programmers, comedians, writers, cross-stitchers, and etc. Everyone has something stupid to contribute.
See our website for some past content and our code of conduct:
7 pm - Arrive with your stupid ideas and whatever you want to work on and look for a stupid sign. (I.e., bring a laptop and/or art supplies if you think you'll work on something requiring that). Nothing messy. Buy yourself a drink and introduce yourself. Look for a stupid sign.
~7-7:10 - If you have an idea, draw a crappy sketch of your bad idea and/or write a short description. We'll assume anyone can join your project unless you make a note saying otherwise.
~7:10-7:30ish - Presentations of Realized Stupidity. Groups/individuals who worked on projects last time and finished them will give unstructured 2-5 min presentations. If the project is deemed totally useless, all involved will get a stupid sticker.
- Mansplaining Twitterbot *on rails* - "Well, actually... it's a Mansplaining Twitterbot *on rails*"
- Cat Emulator - Petting a real cat releases endorphins, petting your screen... probably doesn't.
- Karen Smith from Mean Girls bot - predicts the weather using non-weather related data.
- Girl Pockets for Men
~Afterwards, pm - we'll read through/discuss project ideas that folks submitted earlier. Then people will have the opportunity to cosponsor the stupidest ideas by signing on to them. Folks with ideas that have been co-sponsored can then start recruiting people to their ideas. People can also work on their own ideas alone if they'd prefer, but it's usually more fun to work in a group.
- Until 8:55 - drink plenty of beer/coffee/tea, procrastinate, chat, hang out, make stupid shit with strangers. Don't be too productive. Join our slack channel to coordinate with your group so you can finish over the next few weeks if you don't finish by 8:55pm.
9pm - Ada's closes--time to leave! You can hang out at nearby bars after if you want.
Past previously submitted stupid ideas are on our slack channel: https://join.slack.com/t/stupidslack-seattle/shared_invite/enQtNTc0OTcyNjM0Mzg1LTVjNWI4MmZkM2JlYmMyNTVhMmFhYWQ0Njc5NzVlOGM2MTRlNjIyMTM5N2ZmMDQzNTNjNTA5ZTY0MWUzYmJkZGU
