‘Tis the season to share the joy — and even (gasp!) the grief

Join us on December 18 for a potluck with a twist: instead of food, we’re asking you to bring a product. Make it a product that you either love or hate, because we’ll be sharing stories with each other about these products — and the juicier the story, the better!

A few guidelines and tips:

  • You’ll have a few moments to introduce your product to everyone and describe what you love or hate about it.
  • Be prepared to provide a few words or short phrases that describe your experience in using the product. We’ll collect these words throughout the evening and produce a Wordle tag cloud to illustrate the themes that emerged in our potluck.
  • If the product you want to share isn’t something you can physically bring to the event (like an airplane, or a printing press, or a website), then bring something that illustrates the product. If you’d like to share software or a website, consider printing a screenshot. Alternatively, a laptop, projector, and Internet connection will be available.

A potluck without food? Well, hopefully not.

We’re aiming to make this a fun and informal event. Nothing loosens up a crowd like tasty treats, so feel welcome to inject a bit of traditional potluck into this event by bringing along a food item to share. Now, to be clear, food contributions are not required! Please don’t hesitate to join us if you’re unable to bring anything edible. Everyone understands this could be a challenge, given that we’re meeting at the end of the work day. But if you are able to bring something… well, can you imagine a better way to make new friends? 🙂

RSVPs requested

If you’re hoping to join us, please send an RSVP to Wanda Eby at Communitech. This helps us to better anticipate turnout and plan accordingly.
