This is your invitation to attend Hack Fest 6 at the offices of  
Allmydata.com in Potrero Hill, San Francisco this Thursday, the 26th  
of June.  This will be the 6th in the series of Hack Fests [1, 2, 3,  
4, 5].

Allmydata.com will generously provide pizza, projectors, packets,  
pillows, party-music, and beer.  (But we need more projectors.  If  
you have a projector that you can bring, please do.)

This is a collaborative event in which we use projector displays to  
share what we are doing with the group.  We often work on hacks which  
are themselves tools for collaboration or which are in the public  
interest.  We like openness and freedom and peer review.  We like  
tools to build tools and we like things that empower individuals and  
small groups.

You'll be expected to introduce yourself and mention something you're  
excited about.  (If you're shy, you can do this on an IRC channel  
populated by people who are in the same room with you.)  We'll try to  
take turns so that everyone gets connected to the projector at least  
some of the time so that others can see what you are doing.

Doors open at 17:00, pizza arrives at 18:00 and we have presentations  
and/or pair-programming at 19:00.  Then we party at 20:00.  Also  
these things sometimes happen in different times or in combinations.

Please write to Peter Secor <secorp at allmydata.com> and me  
<zooko at zooko.com> so that we know that you are coming and can plan  
accordingly.  Please feel free to bring your friends, and your  
friends' projectors!



P.S.  Coffee, too.  Last time around the coffee was more popular than  
the beer!
