What is it?

Noisebridge: In-Depth is a monthly lecture series and round table discussion.

When and Where does it happen?

Noisebridge: In-Depth takes place the first Thursday of every month at 8pm, at Noisebridge. This means the next event will be on June 9th, 2011 at 7 pm. (thereafter normal scheduling will resume)

Why are we doing this?

There are many reasons:

  • It provides a deeper look at what people are working on.
  • This is the next step after Five_Minutes_of_Fame.
  • To expose new people to the space
  • Most of the talks have a community outreach slant on them. There are lots of communities that could use skills that Noisebridgers can offer. This is a venue for them to come in, explain their project, and see if they can find help.

How can I participate?

Sign up to give a talk! Contact Zedd by email (zedd [@] HAT-Labs.com). Include your name (or handle), talk title, your website/url, and a short description. In your email, use the subject line "Noisebridge: In-Depth" Speakers will be notified as to when their talks will be scheduled. Talk topic will be finalized and released at least 1 week before the talk.

How can I attend?

Just show up! If for any reason you're unable to attend, you can usually watch it live on our UStream Channel.

How can I help?

We always need people to help with set up and tear down. We also need people to help us find people that are willing to come give a talk. If you know someone, point them at this page.

The Next Lecture

This month's talk is going to be "Anti-Censorship Best Practices for the Sex-Positive Publisher," (Facebook, IndyBay, FetLife) and will be given by Social Justice Technologist and sexuality activist maymay. Formerly an open source programmer “by day” and a sexual freedom advocate “by night,” Maymay has been an outspoken member of kinky, queer communities since 2002. Now a full-time activist, writer, and public speaker, he frequently examines cultural and political issues ranging from censorship to community building and beyond on his blog at http://maybemaimed.com. His multi-media seminars employ an interdisciplinary approach that treats sexuality as a lens on the rest of life. Come ready to watch a fast-paced slideshow and then participate in a far-reaching, informal discussion after the seminar.
