The first meeting of DIYcity San Francisco took place Wednesday January 14, 2009 at PariSoMa coworking space.
It was an exciting meetup; we introduced the core concepts behind DIYcity and went over a series of earlier "city hacks" that exemplify that sort of clever, fun bits of grassroots urban innovation that we aim to build upon and to empower others to build upon. About 35 people participated; most folks were somehow involved in the tech industry but we also had academics, an architect, and even founders of the most "DIY" city ever, Burning Man!
Notes from the meeting are here on the wiki; if you attended and would like to add to this or submit your own notes, please dig in:
Stay tuned; will be growing out the wiki in the coming weeks with a list of ideas for projects we can build out, a list of challenges to pursue, and a list of strong earlier "city hacks" to learn from.
