I'd love to partner with some folks here in the US NYC metro-region on getting some Ada Lovelace Day events in motion.
Sorry JennF, I'm in old York
I hope as the forum picks up in numbers you'll find someone to team up with
I'll put a link in the newsletter and see if anyone is interested. I've also tweeted this thread. However, I have noticed in the past that people don't tend to get organising quite this early!!
It might be worth looking in your area for existing organisations that you could pair up with, and where you might find a ready-made audience. In the UK I'd be looking for a Cafe Scientifique, or a Skeptics in the Pub group to join and go from there. I'm sure there must be similar groups in New York!
This is the first time I have seen your February message.
