Thanks all! And sorry for the radio silence on my end here, we were
waiting for a few details to go through.

The Library Freedom Project <https://libraryfreedomproject.org/>, an
initiative to bring digital privacy education and tools into public
libraries worldwide, would like to host an unconference after the ALA
conference in June in San Francisco.

The dates we'd like to calendar are June 29-30, using the space from
11am-8pm on both days. During the unconference we'll host a variety of
skill shares, conversations on privacy concerns for libraries, discuss
issues of access, radical archiving, copyright, and more.

I am out of town this week, so I can't make it to this week's Tuesday
meeting. But is it possible to let me know soon if this can happen at
Noisebridge for those two days? We will need to use the main space and
the backspace most likely, as there will be two concurrent tracks. I
will come by the next Tuesday, for sure tho!

Would any NB member be interested in being my point of contact to help
me put this on the calendar, etc? Or may I put it on the calendar my self?

Thanks so much and see you all soon! April

PS: I read the creating an event wiki page, thanks for sharing that.
