I’ve mentioned this casually before, but now I’m formally calling for it to be brought to fruition –let’s have a development/human rights/humanitarian relief bloggers meetup!
In New York City! Sometime next month!
I want the following bloggers and their readers in:
– Aid Watch (Because drinking + belligerent aid debates = awesome)
– The bloggerss at Voices from the Field
– Global Health and Blood and Milk readers (It’s too bad Alanna is in Dushanbe, but I’m sure she has a large NY readership)
I am forgetting a lot of people. Please add your suggestions in the comments.
So, does this sound good to you guys?
I’m in – assuming, that is, I can figure out a way to come from SF
I’m in, too.
I’ll be with you in spirit. Possibly in body as well (more likely if it can be in September. Even more likely if it can be in September in Wash. D.C.).
Excellent idea, though I’ll throw my support behind the idea of September in DC.
Boo! DC is far and expensive for me. Although, ok, a September DC meetup sounds good, even if I can’t attend.
Let’s keep the brainstorming going.
No good if you can’t attend.
Agreed. No-go if Transitionland won’t be there.
Can we stick with September and look at other east coast venues? There’s got to be a suitable pub (or at least a Denny’s) somewhere between D.C. and NY that will meet the needs of all parties…
OMG guys, development blogger meetup at the Vince Lombardi rest stop TCBY!
I heard they wrote the UDHR over frosty cups of fro-yo.
Can tweeting non-bloggers come too? I second Vince Lombardi rest stop idea, but do they have booze or do we need to bring our own.
Ian, I trust you know I was kidding about the Vince Lombardi rest stop. If purgatory existed, it would look like a New Jersey rest stop.
Trust you know I was kidding too. Have had the dubious pleasure of gassing up there before.
