Event description

Last month, just before Christmas, a few brave souls ventured out to the Accelerator Centre despite the beginnings of a major snowstorm. We swapped stories and got hands-on with some fun and frustrating products — and had such a good time that everyone agreed we should repeat the event in January.

So if you missed December’s get-together, please join us on January 22 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!

Some 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.

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.

Hope to see you there!
