Open spaces are a way for people to come together to talk about topics, ideas or whatever they want. Any subject that two or more attendees want to talk about is a candidate for an Open Space. Just show up if you want to attend! There are manyplanned open space meetups (as well as ad-hoc ones, too!). Here are a few highlighted ones:
- Trans* Pythonistas and Allies Meetup
- Geekfeminism and feminist hackerspace meetup
- Mani/Pedi party - check back on the open spaces site for more information!
