Short Circuits

TC Open Circuit logoHere’s a venue for PodCamp, MinneBar, MinneDemo, etc. folks and non-profit folks to hug it out.

Open Circuit is “a Twin Cities knowledge-sharing network working to demystify computers and information technology. We foster the free circulation of technical knowledge to help community organizations increase their organizing capacity and improve the common good.”

The group is holding their first public event, Short Circuits, “a series of presentations related to the use and experimentation of open technology in pursuit of social good.” It looks to be unconference-style. It’s tomorrow, Dec 1, at the Acadia Cafe (Franklin and Nicollet) from 1-5pm. Cost is $5 for non-members.

All presentations are 10-15 minutes. Some look really tech-y (“creating a 3 dimensional histogram by mapping the r,g, and b values of each pixel of an image into a 3d space”). Some look more philosophical (“using social media to organize, share information, and build community”) which is more up my alley. Lots to be learned for sure.
