Boing Boing Meetup Tues Jun 7

June 1st, 2011 by uptownmaker

Boing Boing meetup day!

Minneapolis’ own Happy Mutant and resident science blogger extraordinaire, Maggie Koerth-Baker, is putting together a local wing of Boing-Boing’s first International BB Meetup Day. This is of particular interest to us because of the theme: “Wonderful Things”:

On June 7, bring your favorite significant object, coveted curiosity, conversation piece, or mysterious item to the Meetup (Don’t bring something that has a lot of intrinsic value). Then tell the other happy mutants about it!

While you’re at the Meetup, share your thoughts on the items that you see, and if you are so inclined, offer up a swap! Don’t forget to tweet your photos, videos, and details on any exciting swaps using hashtag #BoingBoingMUP.

Check in on the meetup.com page for the event- there are already 8 names on the list and I don’t recognize any of them! This is a great chance to meet some makers from outside the group and see some neat stuff.
