A New England Slacktivite get together is tentatively scheduled for one of the middle days of next week (Tuesday the 8th, Wednesday the 9th, Thursday the 10th), hopefully a movie will be involved. If you can show up, now would be a very good time to say so (might also help with determining which day.)
So, you know, use this thread or email me or some such to say if you can show up. And please do it soon because it helps to have advance warning and we are talking about something, at most, a week away.
Tomorrow is Deconstruction Friday
Submissions for the weekend post due by 20:00 GMT Saturday.
Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in. Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post. The answer to that is always the same: You do. So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.
The sections of the post are as follows:
Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.
Remember, this is since you last submitted to a weekend post, not since the last weekend post. For example, if the last time you submitted was a month ago, everything you wrote since then is fair game.
Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers. These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.
Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.
Urgent or time-sensitive announcements will be posted immediately rather than being held for the next regular “This Weekend” post. But you’ll have to tell me they’re urgent or time sensitive because it’s liable to go right over my head if you don’t.
Since this thread is being reserved on the off chance other New Englanders can show up, if you need an open thread just use the last one and ignore the prompt.
