Jill Foster invited me, along with five other people, to help out with DC Media Makers. We had a little pre-meeting before the DC Media Makers talk at NPR headquarters tonight. It seems like a pretty good group, so I think it would be a good idea to get more involved.
Dave Saunders gave a talk about Samurai. He is an engaging speaker. He was involved in developing the internet in 1990 and worked with the people who invented the 56k modem. But he doesn’t care about connecting computers. It’s about connecting people.
