UK meetup 1.5 - Info for next meetup!
« on: Fri, 09 December 2016, 11:50:47 »
Hey everyone!
I'm glad everyone enjoyed the first meetup so we have already began working on the next! This post is about a smaller meetup which will take early next year (January/February) as Chyros is moving back to the Netherlands and so won't be able to attend the main meetup! The main (large) meetup will take place September, October or November next year and so we thought it would also be fitting to have a smaller one in the meantime.

All the details are of course yet to be confirmed, including the location and exactly when. But we are considering hiring a place as a sort of 'proof of concept' so we have some experience with hiring out a place for future meetups.
Coming along shouldn't be expensive to anyone, and all costs will go towards hiring the venue.

In terms of organising the main meetup, all of that will begin early next year. All organisation will take place on reddit and will be cross posted to the Facebook group; any polls or questionnaires that we will run will be done through google polls.
Thanks for joining and I look forward to seeing you all at the next one!
Feel free to ask questions if need be :)

------------UPDATE 2-------------

Date: Sunday 12th Febuary 2017

Hampshire is good, closer to me than London
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
