If you care about the Open Web, then this meetup, organised by P2PU volunteers John Britton and Jane Park is the place to be if you’re in NYC. (They’re both also all-round awesome people, who work with other very cool organisations)
Drumbeat New York will be held on August 7, 2010 – 12:00pm – 5:00pm at OpenPlans, 148 Lafayette Street New York, NY, 10013.
If you’re wondering what it’s about, look no further:
Will the web still be open in 100 years? Mozilla thinks it can, and should be. That’s why we’re starting Mozilla Drumbeat, an invitation to everyday internet users to come up with ideas and projects that will make the web better, keeping it open for the long haul. We want you to get involved!
We are building a new community that includes teachers, artists, designers, filmmakers, writers, lawyers, and policymakers—in addition to open web geeks. Come to Drumbeat New York and learn how you can help keep the web open, or show others what you’re already doing!
