This informal biweekly meet-up might be of interest to anybody in the NYC

Subject: biweekly meeting: this wednesday, 7pm, Octopart offices in 

Hi everybody,

For those who can make it, this week's meeting will be Wednesday at 7pm at
Octopart's offices in Manhattan:

43 W. 24th St, Floor 12
Nearest subway: NR at 23rd St or FM at 23rd St

If the front door is locked i'll tape instructions to it, otherwise take 
the elevators right up to the 12th floor. If you have trouble getting in 
or get lost you can reach me at 617-752-1733

The general theme will be data ownership and privacy; following comments
last time it sounds like we should try to split between background
information and a specific technology, so i'll bring a FreedomBox plug
computer and we can talk about the specific goals of that project:


Sorry for the short notice, especially as we are switching from Thursday 
to Wednesday, I hope a good quorum can make it! For the next meeting (Wed 
May 9th) i'm looking to have us hosted at either NYC Resistor in Brooklyn 
or Hack Manhattan near Union Square.
