The meetings were Saturday. We had 5 people in South Carolina, and there were 6 people in Minnesota. While that’s not huge, both groups had fun and got some stuff done. They did more citizen media stuff in Minnesota, but a lady in SC also got help with her laptop from a guy who happens to work as a security/spyware specialist. The theory works! Bring what you have, teach what you know, learn what you need indeed.
The next Carolina meeting will be April in Charleston. I learned a few lessons about where to focus resources from this attempt, and maybe we’ll get things working a little better for the next shot. It’s not a bad start. Thanks to everyone that came out, to all who sent their support, and everyone that helped on the wiki and other places. Onward to the future!
