Portland-area folks: I’m finally over the plague and ready to organize a micro meetup. I set up a Doodle. Even if next week is not good, please fill out which days you prefer for an ongoing meetup. (Next week Tuesday is Core Audio karaoke, so that’s out.) @verso @cheesemaker @jw
@macgenie I've been meaning to find a good way to re-start the Homebrew Website Club meetups in Portland this year! Maybe we could combine them? We typically do every 2 weeks or monthly on Wednesdays.
@aaronpk That's a great idea! Do you want to meet up next Wednesday?
Yeah! That'd be great! I don't have a space for it anymore though.
@aaronpk @verso and I were trying to come up with the equivalent of the Green Dragon, since we are calling it Microblog and Microbrew! I like Lucky Lab, but it is admittedly noisy and the food options are meh.
Does the new Rogue not work for meetups anymore? I've only been there once since the change. There's also Loyal Legion maybe?
@aaronpk I haven't been to Rogue with a group, but it could work. Maybe we should try that. How many Homebrewers would you expect. I think the Microbloggers will be a small contingent to start. @verso: thoughts?
We were usually around 4-7 people last year, and did just monthly meetups. Part of the reason I haven't re-started them this year is it's a lot of work without a co-host!
@aaronpk Let's plan on meeting next Wednesday, and we'll figure out a good place by then. I think Homebrew and Microblog are an excellent fit, and I would be honored to co-host!
@macgenie @aaronpk @verso I went to Modern Times last night (old Commons space) and really loved it. Not sure about the space but I think it’d work if we don’t have like 30 people (there are even couches!). Hope it goes without saying: I’d like to join!
Awesome! Looking forward to it! I'll set up event pages for it on indieweb.org and calagator! Where do you normally post about it?
Do you have any existing event copy/description you've used in the past? Also what should we call this? Homebrew Microblog Meetup? 😂
@aaronpk Hmm. We haven't had meetup yet. I liked the idea of calling it Microbrew & Microblog as an homage to Beer & Blog. But Homebrew Microblog would get across the idea. No template yet!
