A Local Group is a group of people who, like you, are passionate about design. Local Groups organize meetings to get inspired, have fun and learn from one another.

Meet-Up Details

Word up IxDF San Francisco. This new class I’m taking has me making this meet up. If you’re bored, lonely, or not that and you’re living your best life then let’s meet up. I’m down if you are.

Meet-Up Discussion

Hi all! Please use this discussion thread to discuss Much ado about design held on Aug 3, 2023. Feel free to ask questions about the place, date and time, agenda of the meeting, or anything else.

Hello, the meetup is from 5AM to 7AM ?

+1 Same question from me

Heh. #fail on this one. I’ve updated the time to be post-meridien.

I’m thinking this is an agenda free event, I mean a meeting agenda, bring an intent for sure. I’ll bring discussion topics to make our conversation as awkward as possible. No sense in this thing going smoothly, who wants that, AMIRITE?!

Spark Social isn’t HUGE but it is substantial. I’ll wear a brown hat with ‘Guinness’ on it and a wooden bow tie so you can find me. Not exactly a beacon of light but I’m not equipped with clothes that stand out. Hopefully it won’t be Guinness hat and wooden bow-tie day at Spark Social.

What else do you want to know?

Hi Daniel, I’m not in San Francisco at that time, but would still like to join. Any chance I could join in virtually?

What’s good Leke? Unfortunately this is an in-person only event but it’s good to know you’re down for a virtual visit.

Thanks for replying Daniel. That’s cool. What about the next event, could a virtual visit be allowed?

Yeah. Virtual is an option. It’s the hybrid that I’m not sure how to make work. I’m not the most dependable when it comes to organizing social events so feel free to make your own. I hereby grant you the permission to do so. *skill acquired music plays*

Hahaha. Thanks mate. Any chance we could meet virtually after the 3rd. Just so I know how this current meet up went and that’ll help me in organizing the next virtual meet up. I’ll really need your assistance to organize it.

What do you say, You in?

For you, I’m in. I found you on LinkedIn but if you want to communicate elsewhere like e-mail, phone, discord, slack, whatever then give me the details and I’ll find you there too.

This is awesome Daniel.

Which ever works for me. I’ll be expecting your message.

Hi Daniel, I was curious what class you’re taking that inspired you to organize a meetup? Thanks for taking the initiative!

Every class begins with a prompt to host a meetup. This particular class is Perception and Memory in HCI and UX.

HA! This platform uses a 24hr clock. Did not know. Updated to 5-7pm.

I'm here in the back annex (not the mini golf area) in the picnic table corral. Still with the hat and bow-tie. It's not too bad out here. Can wait to see you.

Hi @Daniel Mason, I haven’t heard from you. Thanks for being willing to go out your way to do this favor for me.

How did the meet up go? And when can we get on that virtual call to organize the next virtual meeting, as per our last discussion.

You can leave all the planning and organization to me. I need your assistance with it.

Meet-up attendees

Members can show their interest to attend a meet-up by clicking “Attend this meet-up” button. In addition, since Local Groups events are open to all, non-members can also attend these meet-ups.

Members might be bringing their non-member friends to a Local Group meet-up (and you’re welcome to do the same), but their non-member friends will not be shown as “attending” because this feature is only available to members.

P.S.: Note that the number of attendees is not an indication of its value! Small meet-ups work perfectly, and can facilitate deeper, more fruitful conversations.
