Show and Tell

Posted in Bio,Ideas,Open Source Software by dwins on May 20, 2008

So, I’ve sort of started this thing at TOPP.  It wasn’t incredibly intentional, it really just started with me getting some non-techies together and giving them the 30-minute tour of What It Is Those Wacky Guys Upstairs Are Doing.  And everyone said “Hey, it would be great if people could do this sort of mass mind meld whenever they wanted.”  So I thought we’d be seeing more of it since, you know, they can.  But it didn’t really happen until one day, in #openplans:

So I did.   Anyway, I say all this to lead up to this blog post I made elsewhere.  The short version? I would like software to help in scheduling volunteer-proposed and volunteer-run events and am having trouble finding anything ready-made out there.  Maybe I’ll make it happen; it wouldn’t be the first piece of code that I wrote for TOPP Talks.
