Note from Sanford Dickert


Thank you for coming tonight - and it was terrific having all of you come. If you could, please place your email and/or website below so that we can invite you to other events at Cooper Union and other participating universities.


Again, thank you for your contributions. Have a terrific New Year!


- Sanford


Note from Jeff Solomon


I really enjoyed this unconference, and I would like to thank Dave, Sanford, Cooper Union, and everyone who facilitated and participated. There was one topic that I was hoping to discuss with the group and did not have the opportunity to, so I just blogged about it and would like to invite everyone to continue the discussion in the blogosphere. My post is here:


Happy New Year to all.

Update on Scripting News.


Notes from Dave


Shall we have a Scripting News meetup in NYC in the last week of the year?


Day or night?


I'd rather not do it at a restaurant, because that means each one of us only gets to talk with two or three people. Better to have it in a conference room type place, or a bar (but they get noisy and it's hard to hear people talk).


Another idea is to get a big table in a private room at a restaurant. But that usually requires some kind of guarantee, not really practical for a wiki-style meetup.




Notes from Nick


Is this meeting open to anyone?


~Nick O'Neill (

Notes from Mike

How about a restaurant, but half of the people play musical chairs every 10 minutes? I'm willing to float around with my plate, fork, drink and napkin. There has to be some way to "enable" people to meet others, like speed dating (2 min, next table).


It'll be a bit crazy, but at the Grand Central meetup I noticed that a lot of people didn't get a chance to mingle.


Can we do nametags? I'm willing to bring markers and blanks, and even greet people. First name and blog URL?


- Mike

Notes from Bryan


What about beginning bloggers? Could be a great chance to network./ Later in the week is better for those of us coming back from holiday.



Notes from Greg


FYI - I passed this on to nextNY, which is a great new media group in NYC that has a blog and a lot of bloggers as members.


-- Greg (

What day works for people? I like the -27- 28th.

Sorry, I'm booked on the 27th at night.


-Howard Greenstein

Been laying low to the blogging scene for the past year but looking forward to meeting other bloggers and learning more about the blogsphere. The one day I cannot make it next week is Thursday, 28th

Notes from Ben


I also cannot do the 28th. The 27th would work for me.




Notes from Greg C.

Interested in meeting all you fine fellows, but if anyone knows any local women bloggers, that might make things more interesting And no, not in that way. I'm happily married :-)

more notes from Bryan

Evening on the 27th could work for me. i'll be jetlagged and without an AC adapter, but i should live :-) the 28th works better.

Notes from Gary Russo


I recommend contacting Google's NYC office. Phone is 212.565.0000.

Google NYC has been graciously volunteering the space to a local NY Java SIG:


They have great conference room spaces.

The address is 76 Ninth Avenue, 4th floor (corner of 15th Street and 9th Avenue).


The trendy meat packing district restaurant scene is nearby too.

Notes from Nathan Weinberg

I second the Google NYC offices. They let the New York Tech Meetup use the space in November, and the new offices are spacious and brand new. Also, the 28th is a good choice, anything but Friday night.

Note from James


Wished I could have make it on 27th. 28th would be great for me.

Note from Dean Landsman


Wednesday and Thursday don't work for me -- Friday is actually better. Gee, maybe there ought to be 2 meetings, one Thursday, one Friday. Perhaps those of a mind to do so could attend both. Is anyone going to step up, coordinate with Dave, organize this? Dave, your thoughts?

Note from Paul Hardwick


I can probably do either the 27th or 28th but 28th would be better

Note from Ric Johnson


I can probably do any night except Friday, and would prefer later in the day. I need to come from D.C. - Anyone have suggestions on best way to go? I can grab the train - but I do not know how long it will take and if it will be in service when we are done


NOTE: Missed my train connection - can not make it! Wished I had cuz I wanted to talk to Dave about and try to convince some bloggers to use - if anyone wants to discuss, please feel free to contact me.

Note from Raines Cohen


This just in: James Brown will be lying in state (metaphorically speaking) at the Apollo Theater this Thursday. In case anybody wants to meet there before heading over, give me a holler: (510) 868-1627 from cell or (866) 758-3942 from payphone. Just caught it on the news, here's the AP, hours are 1-8 PM.

Note from Ric Johnson

I just noticed in my emails that I receive the actual email address of people that change the wiki. I found a way to change my notifications but was further dismayed that the page showed eveyone's email in plain sight! Please remove my personal email - save us from the spammers!

Note from Tim Marman

Any update on the location?

Why is there a comment system for a WIKI? Isn't that redundant? I would like t see a spell checker instead, cuz I do not know how to spell redundany.
