Discussion

wow, that are already three times more people than on the TWikiCommunitySummitRome2007

-- CarloSchulz - 19 Nov 2007

Yep, we notified many users. This is mainly a user meetup, complementing the TWikiCommunitySummits. I will try to recruit new contributors. I'd like to see user meetup initiatives in other parts of the world!

-- PeterThoeny - 20 Nov 2007

Just a quick note on the first Silicon Valley TWiki User Meetup: It was a nice gathering, about 60 people showed up. Rod and I first gave a presentation. I showed some of the collaboration slides of the wiki for workplace tutorial I gave at WikiSym2007; Rod talked about the Starfish and Spider concept and introduced TWIKI.NET. Then we asked participants to tell their TWiki story. People of Yahoo, Motorola, as well as startups/consultants showed what they do with TWiki. First prize went to VickiBrown of Yahoo who showed TWikiForms based TWikiApplications, second prize went to IanKluft who showed a HowToMultipleTWikiSitesOnSingleInstallation, third prize went to Guy Martin who showed how they use TWiki at Motorola. We had lots of fun, networking, pizza, beer and wine. Let's repeat that!

-- PeterThoeny - 01 Dec 2007

My presentation can be viewed at cfcl.com:TWikiMeetupPres

-- VickiBrown - 02 Dec 2007

We will have a live broadcast for the 2008-05-16 meetup, see streaming video above.

-- PeterThoeny - 16 May 2008

Apparently there was some technical difficulties on the live broadcasting, it did not happen! The video will be made available.

-- PeterThoeny - 16 May 2008

Thanks all who attended the TWiki User Meetup in San Francisco yesterday, good energy!

-- PeterThoeny - 2009-11-05

The venue is now decided: We will meet at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley at NASA Ames in Mountain View, CA.

I had an idea and ask the security chief at NASA Ames I know to give us a private tour of NASA Ames Research Center before the meetup. They have the biggest & fastest wind tunnels. Unfortunately it was too short notice, they need to run a background on each participant and that takes time.
