Jeff Cutler at Bowl of Cheese writes about the meeting in his post ‘Making Media’:

OK, you might argue that I have a problem if I’m at a bar in Jamaica Plain at 10AM on a Sunday. Well, part of the process…in fact the first step…is admitting you have a problem. I’m not a quitter, so I’m not going to admit anything.

Read David Tamés’ extensive meeting notes. He says in part:

Some people who I tell about the monthly Boston Media Maker un-meetings can’t imagine getting up early on a Sunday morning and trekking across town. For me, Sunday mornings are usually reserved for slowly sipping coffee while reading the Sunday New York Times, so I can relate, however, take a look at the depth and breath of attendees and topics this month. Every month an amazing group of people ask interesting questions or talk about their new media activity in the Boston area. If you’re into new media, want to get into new media, or want to help others get into new media, Boston Media Makers is the place to be the first Sunday of every month to go around the room and ask a question, do a show and tell, share a story, or just give a quick update of what you’ve been up to.

    YAY. First comment.

    No photo to share, but I did blog about it. Here’s the link..

    Loved meeting the people and chatting about tech and opportunities.

    Would someone be kind enough to share the twitter names of all the attendees so we can add them to our following list?

    Thanks and see you all next month.

    Almost all the good links — live Twitter and biz cards — are in hand. Who can tell me the one I didn’t get for the easy-to-use German blog software?


  4. David Tames says:

    I just posted my notes from Sunday’s Meeting (April 6, 2008):

  5. Mike Ball says:

    Thanks to David for the Jimdo reference in his notes. That was my missing link.

    Also, I was sending people to Left iin Lowell for our BlogLeft netroots conference on Saturday, April 19th. It’s for bloggers and favors lefties and progressives. We’ve had a couple of these, plus our lieutenant governor debate. It’s a good chance to mingle with us pinkos.

    Also coming up for bloggers, we have a forming meeting of those in JP and Roslindale. Over at Universal Hub, Adam started the call for a gathering.

  7. Andrea Mercado wrote up a nice blog post from this meeting AND attached an audio recording.

    Check it out.

    This might be a strange question, but I am a vegetarian, so I’m looking for contact lenses which do not contain some animal suffering. I gather that many lenses have either parts that have been tried out with animals, or are manufactured with animal stuff. Are there any lenses that are entirely man-made?
