Details of Karen's Place

I live in a rented duplex, with 2 rooms + kitchen upstairs, and another room (heated by a space heater only) downstairs, so there should be enough space for folks to do various things.

Who's coming, and what are you planning to do?

  • fulvio: from 10 til noon I'll be at a wide-world changers support group, but I'll be at Saturday House the rest of the day. I'd like to explore Google's OpenSocial, and see how non-profits and community activist groups can tap into that. I'm not caucusing, since I can't vote (no, not a felon, the other kind of unrepresented human).
  • Karen: I'll be there, possibly sorting out my current knitting project, grappling with iTunes, baking something (for immediate consumption), or just hanging out and enjoying everyone's company! I won't be caucusing, so feel free to come by any time between 10 and 5.
  • LionKimbro: I'll be there, probably more towards the morning side of the day; I'd like to put together a flier for Ballard Saturday House, and perhaps, ... ...a hand-drawn map of Ballard, *for* Sustainable Ballard? May also program, talk about the Introduction to Sociocracy with fulvio, ...
  • jenny: I'm going to drop off wood and firepit at Vic's and then head over now. Don't know what I will be doing when I get there, but I'm bringing a game.

Goings on
