This post is a placeholder for information about events we are planning for the AAA in New Orleans: the Savage Minds Party and the Open Access Lunch. There is also some info on the planned Twitter Meetup(s). This post will continue to be updated right up till the last minute, so be sure to check back here for the latest info! (We will also be posting updates on Twitter, using the #aaa2010 hashtag.)
Savage Minds Party
This has become something of an annual tradition, and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know some of our readers, as well as fellow anthropology bloggers IRL. This year I might even meet Dustin!
Time: Friday PM, 8-10pm.
Place: NEW LOCATION: Bootleggers 209 Decatur (1 block in from Canal)
Open Access Lunch
A chance to share stories of success and failure in the quest for a more open anthropology. In the past we’ve had some great dialog with people involved in all aspects of anthropology publishing: editors of section journals, AAA staff, librarians, etc. have all joined in.
Time: 12 noon
Place: Felipe’s Taqueria
I think some people are planning an official Saturday evening Twitter meetup. Unfortunately I’ll be heading home then, but if you follow the #aaa2010 hashtag I’m sure there will be updates on that as well. I also would like to encourage a series of “flash” Twitter meetups throughout the conference, bringing together whomever is around to gather for a quick coffee in the lobby or wherever there is WiFi access.
