Talk To Local Folks! Where Are You From? Wanna Start A Collective?
edited September 2016 in Community
Hey, everybody! I was perusing through some of the older threads and I noticed that there does not seem to be any easy way to get in touch with any local biohacker or grinder collectives in your area, aside from making a thread like this. I thought I saw something about a Slack account but I got the impression that that was only for the Staff. Does anyone have any better ideas about how a centralized group list could be created? Add one to the wiki, create a sticky thread with the info of the groups, something like that perhaps?
But I also wanted to start a thread that would help to accomplish the same goals. I want to meet ya'll and get to work creating some insane future tech with my fellow transhumanists! So where are you from? Let's talk about it. Are there any groups in your area? What do they do? Are they like a social club? Or are they actively working on things and shun members who don't? Where are you? What are you up to and what are the groups around you up to?
My name is Trent Ryan Katzenberger aka The Diabetic GameMaster. I live in Bradenton, FL, USA with my Wife, Hope. I haven't been able to find any active local communities near me yet, but there has to be SOMETHING. Bradenton is around an hour South of Tampa and about 2 and a half hours South East of Orlando, so there has gotta be someone doing something neat in this swamp hell, but I have yet to find them. I have no active projects of my own atm, aside from contributing my knowledge around the boards, although I am very excited to get my first implant soon. I will be going with either a magnet of a Firefly Tattoo.
It still needs a lot of polish and currently lives on my workbed, but it's getting closer to release! It sounds like there's a lot of interest in something like this, so I might explore some plans for a beta run just to see how it works in practice. If you have some ideas, throw them at me!
