NYC2600 Meeting – August 2020

Posted at 5:37 PM on 8-4-20 by Rob T Firefly

We are not hanging out together, but we are hanging in together.

Please join us for August’s all-singing all-dancing all-remote NYC2600 Meeting!

Who: Us, and hopefully you.

What: The NYC2600 Meeting, Man On Wire Edition.

When: Friday, August 7, beginning at 4:00 PM and continuing on into the wee hours.

Where: There! Where your keister is planted. Via Zoom, still, for now. (See below.)

Why: To meet up, eat our own food, do our own stuff, and recover from nine HOPEful days.


Here’s how it works:

  • Send an email to conf at nyc2600 dot net asking for a Zoom conference invite.
    Please do so even if you were already a recipient of an invite to any previous remote NYC2600 meetings, as those email addresses were not kept. They will not be kept this time, either. These emails are being handled by a robot which really enjoys forgetting all about you.
  • You’ll receive said invite at the email address from which you requested it. With this invite you can join by web, app, or even flippin’ phone anytime after the meeting starts up at 4PM EDT.
  • There’s still no step 3!!!

See you there!


Please note:

In the spirit of using and supporting open software accessible to all without the moral concerns of continuing to support Zoom, we are looking for a dependable, accessible, affordable alternative to Zoom we can use for remote meetings going forward.

Please get in touch with any ideas. We wish to hear from everyone, especially those with accessibility-related needs, about your experiences with alternative videoconferencing systems. Our aim continues to be to keep our event as open and welcoming to all as possible. We hope to arrange something new for future meetings!

We’re socially-distant this month, but that isn’t stopping us!

Who: Us, and hopefully you.

What: The NYC2600 Meeting, Sanity Maintenance Edition.

When: Friday, April 3, 5:00 PM ~ 8:00 PM and beyond
