You're ALL most warmly invited to drop by, hang out, say hello and help welcome Dave Slusher, Uplift and the Do-It-Yourself tech/media movement to Charleston on Saturday, April 29. Our meeting will take place simultaneously with the Uplifter Seattle session.
Here's the concept: Uplift is a national, non-profit, all-volunteer group devoted to helping regular people make use of free and low-cost technological tools. Uplifters support independent expression, citizens’ media and Do-It-Yourself thinking. The group doesn't have a budget -- it has people. More information can be found at its wiki/website, www.uplifter.org.
In other words: If you want to learn how to do more stuff, come to our Uplift session. If you don't know how to do anything, come to our Uplift session. If you know how do some things and you'd like to help other people learn them, come to our Uplift session. And if you'd just like to hang out at a nice place with some great coffee and meet some cool people, come to our Uplift session!
WHEN: Saturday, April 29, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
WHERE: Kudu Coffee, 4 Vanderhorst St., one block from Marion Square off King Street.
WHO: Anyone is welcome, from beginners to technology professionals and everyone in between.
WHY: To help people, no matter their skill level, take greater control over the technology in their lives.
HOW: By dropping in. The format of a typical Uplift session is informal, with volunteers available to answer questions and demonstrate techniques on a person-to-person basis.
