Jonathan M Go: the Floating World
I'm bad at playing Go, but I'm great at teaching it, especially to beginners.  I'm going to bring some floating Go sets that can be played while swimming in the pool, and I'll teach as many people to play as I can before the sunscreen wears off.  (I'm just 4 kyu, so dan-ranked players should probably pair off with other supergeniuses or your local neural network.)
Ann V -ooh fun - thanks Jonathan!
Tantek.com Rational Discourse
A participatory session co-led by Tantek and Thor.
Summary: Why? From words & framing, to fallacies & empathizing, there's a lot we all do (and can help each other improve). We'll look at a few examples, from "the media", to a thread or two of our own FB group.
When: tentatively Saturday mid-morning, after yoga, before Joy.
Where: looking for a room

[yes to footnotes]
is there a SF Yes group? I know when I was NYC side it was sometimes tough to know who was where... also gah! all the things happening in cities I couldn't get to! Would be great for folks traveling to be able to go to THAT CITY page and say YO. Not sure if FB is the best, or if it should be somewhere else...
TBD: LA Decompression
TBD: NYC Decompression
Aka Tara & Carlos are visiting Laura in Boston, so, hey. Why not.

Are you going to a conference? Are you speaking at one? Get it on this list! 
This will also be an awesome resource by way of conferences we've loved attending / speaking at in the past so we can all can keep an ear to the ground when for their next CFP comes out. 
Did you hear about an open call to speak at some awesome conference? Did you get news of an art grant that's open? Maybe an internship or travel opportunity? Get it in here! 
Post up what you've heard about, and when you've got that proposal drafted up, get some feedback from folks who are in the know. MORE YES EVERYWHERE. 
  • Maybe Next Year... 
Stuff that occurred to us this year that we don't want to forget about for next year. I feel like I've had a ton of ideas in past years, but then forgot over the winter, or didn't get them in front of my face again soon enough to be well enough prepared this year!
Hey, maybe some of these could happen during a winter Yes, or during our in-between Yes meetups / decompressions!
DON'T LOOK if you'd rather keep the surprise...
