Thanks to all who came out last night to the first DIYcity meetup in NYC. It was a huge success, esp for a first meetup. Attendance was high, people seemed very smart about the subject, and everyone came prepared to participate.
We focused the evening on building out a general framework for DIYcity in New York, something we could then continue build on in the future. Discussion topics included:
- What does DIYcity mean anyway? What are the common elements that identify a service, tool, etc as being a DIYcity thing?
- What are the possibilities for DIYcity applications? What it is possible to do with this approach to city systems?
- What are some specific things we could do in NYC to address issues in the city in a DIYcity way?
- Where to start with these ideas? What's next?
I will post notes from the meeting to the new wiki (thanks Sean) when I get them. Hopefully they can form a basis for future conversations.
Very interested to hear a report from SF on how the meetup went there...
