It's official! I have scheduled a room at George Mason University.
On Saturday August 22nd, 2009 starting at 3PM and going no later than 9PM I will attempt to do my best at hosting a Bug Jam.
The event will be held in the Research 1 Building in Room 301.
Since this is a Saturday the building will be locked. Being a graduate student I have access into the building and therefore I can let people into the building. This being said, maybe someone knows a good system of letting people into the building, without risking any security problems.
If you take the METRO in I would recommend taking the CUE to GMU from the Vienna/GMU stop and walking through campus to get to the research building. If you drive in, there is parking in the parking garage across from the research building. Unfortunately its not free, but I don't imagine its very expensive.
There will be wireless internet available in the room, and this will be a BYOB event (bring your own box.... ok not box but laptop it just sounded cool) event as there are no computers in the room.
Since I am not made of money, I would appreciate people to RSVP by August 15th so I can get an idea of how much pizza/soda to get and then I can give attendees an idea of how much to donate to the food. If you are vegetarian or vegan etc.. then please let me know so I can try to plan for that as well.
Hope to hear back from lots of you!
