Next, we work on timing

Meetup is a good idea—they provide a mechanism for people with a particular interest to find out about others like themselves in their area, and get together with them—but I think Science Fiction Writer Meetup is close to seventy years late: been there, done that, built a subculture out of it.

I put in my zipcode and got this answer:

Not enough Science Fiction Writers near Minneapolis, MN can make it, so this month's Meetup is cancelled. Join this topic by filling in the info below and we'll sign you up for next month.

I croggle quietly at my desk.

That's it, then. There just isn't enough interest in SF, this time of year in MPLS, to sustain a gathering.

Alas! The same message appears when you check for New York City and Boston, Mass.

Let's forget the entire thing.

Austin likewise. Guess I'll have to console myself drinking beer with Cory at Bruce's place after SXSW.

Smaller type (our default)
Larger type
Even larger type, with serifs
