    Just a small note about the gathering @FreeLunchDesign. We have limited seats, so let me know beforehand ( @johanp ) if you want to come and I’ll see if we can fit one more! Welcome!

  2. onefineline says:

    San Francisco, anyone?? I’d love to have a get-together.

  3. PoV says:

    Thanks Lamere and bcdefg123 (heh), I’ve added you to the list. I am now back from PAX, so anyone that I’ve missed, leave a comment or poke me some other way and I’ll add you.

  4. Kvisle says:

    Bitraf, a hackerspace in Oslo, Norway will have a meetup;

  5. Cake&Code says:

    There should be a meetup in San Diego/La Jolla. This may need to be seriously proposed.

    • PoV says:

      Sounds good. If you’re spearheading that, you should get on that. Then make a post/provide a link with details, and I’ll add it.

      • Cake&Code says:

        I’ll look into it. I’m hoping I can maybe find someplace comfy over at the UCSD campus, but my partner is possibly stuck with his desktop. I’ll definitely keep you looped in on any plans that may unfold. :)

        • Rabbits... says:

          if you can put a meeting location together for San Diego I will go to it…

          • Cake&Code says:

            The biggest problem right now is finding the space for it. UCSD would have been the best spot, but booking any of the rooms/classrooms is strict and unfortunately I’m an alumni making it even harder. u_u

            My best idea is just flashmob Price Center and jam there. Not sure if that’s something that’s really ok, maybe with a few folks rather than a huge group?

            I’ll definitely keep you in the loop since you’re around the hood. :)

    We’re having a gathering in Manchester, UK! It’s sold out (fifty tickets! We’re charging a little because there’s other stuff happening over the weekend too). However it’s likely that some people will cancel or not be able to attend or whatever, so get on the waiting list and we’ll let people know if tickets become available. Full details on the post:

    The Omaha Game Developers Association, Bellevue University’s Game Studies program are hosting a site at CAMP Omaha.

    • PoV says:

      Phew! Had to do some extra research here. I did not know what state Omaha was in, and *I’m Guessing* CAMP is this coworking space I found via a Google search. Let me know if I’ve made a mistake.

  14. mattperrin says:

    The Cleveland Game Developers group in Cleveland, Ohio will be holding a Ludum Dare Launch event for a few hours on Friday night at the LaunchHouse in Shaker Heights. RSVPs would be appreciated so we can make sure we have enough table space reserved.
