INTERNET VARIETY STORE INTERNET VARIETY STORE

On July 25, 2010, from 10am - 8pm an experimental storefront will offer a space for hosting internet technology classes for community organizers.

To sign up, you should visit the storefront during the week before, or send an email to [email protected] (keeping this a little low key due to limited resources.)

Specifically, we want to bring something like Trade School to Minneapolis (http://ourgoods.org) - something which EXCO is already doing! :) -- we are offering this space as a way to try this out in a storefront setting so we can learn from it for a bigger event down the road.

Here is the best place to look for more information: http://garden.localbiology/internet-variety-store

That isn't all that's going on: INTERNET VARIETY STORE

A variety store featuring artisan, open source internet products.

The Internet is making a special appearance in Minneapolis this summer. Come experience the Internet through events, classes & interactive installations. At night, we will transform the space to the city's hottest evening open source community coder lounge.
