>Just a reminder that the next meet-and-greet for the New Jersey
>Transhumanist Association will be held on Sunday, April 16th at 7:00
While we await clarification of that date, I wanted to mention two other
events this weekend:
the 30th annual Trenton Computer Festival, Saturday April 16 and
Sunday April 17, returning to its original venue, The College of New
Jersey (formerly Trenton State College) in Ewing Township.
Highlights include a keynote by Brian Kernighan on Saturday afternoon,
a hands-on collection of old computers from the 1960s to 1980s, and
the big flea market.
Except for the Saturday banquet, the show ends at 5 on Saturday and
5 on Sunday. Kernighan speaks earlier, Saturday 2:35-3:30.
Google Maps says driving from Ewing to Clifton takes 62 minutes:
The first MIT Swapfest of the season is Sunday, April 17:
>We'll be meeting at the same location as last time; the Barnes &
>Nobel bookstore on Route 3 east in Clifton. We'll meet in the cafe
>area, and I'll make sure we have the "NJTA" sign on our table!
>(Assuming we can snag one!)
>Topics of discussion will be the upcoming exhibitor's table and
>presentations at Balticon Memorial Day weekend, and a recap of
>Lunacon in March. Plus, there are a couple of films opening this
>summer that touch on Transhumanist themes; we might want to plan on
>having a presence at an opening.
