Politech CFP 2003 Evening Reception
Announcing a Politech gathering during the Computers, Freedom and
Privacy conference in April 2003 in New York City. All
politechnicals and friends are invited. If you're not coming to the
conference -- or didn't want to pay the $535 to $585 fee -- but
happen to be in the area, join us anyway! (The reception is not
affiliated with CFP.)
The plan is to gather for drinks on Tuesday, April 1 at 7 pm at the
Zanzibar restaurant and lounge at 645 9th Avenue (at 45th). That's
one long block and 10 short blocks from the conference hotel, a 10
to 15 minute walk. We'll have a private room and a cash bar.
Zanzibar has agreed to discount beer and mixed drinks by $1.
This gathering follows last year's extremely successful Politech
dinner in San Francisco, which drew around 75 people. (See photos.)
Before that, we've had Politech dinners in San Francisco in 1999
and (with the help of John Gilmore) in 1998, and occasional
gatherings in Washington, DC, such as a November 2001 informal talk
by Ian Clarke.
We're meeting for drinks instead of dinner this time to allow more
opportunity for socializing with folks who aren't at your table.
Zanzibar has a full menu, though, if you choose to stay for dinner
-- and a terrific selection of appetizer platters if you don't.
Where: Zanzibar restaurant and lounge at 645 9th Avenue (at 45th).
See Mapquest's directions if you need them.
When: Tuesday, April 1, 2003 at 7 pm.
If you're planning to come, please email me at declan at well.com
with "CFP" in the Subject: line, so I can make sure Zanzibar
reserves enough space to accomodate us. See you there!
