I missed the protest on Wednesday – didn't hear of it in time. Does anyone have a line on upcoming protests or a social media feed for such things?

I got this e-mail from Young Somerville Advisory Group today:

I am excited to invite you to the re-launch event of the Young Somerville Advisory Group! RSVP here! A team of us has been working together to think about the best role that the Advisory Group fills in our City-- and we've decided that it all starts with building community among young people of all backgrounds and interests.

Join us at Brass Union in Union Square next Tuesday evening, 12/8, at 6:30pm. We are hoping for a good turnout of both old and new members of the Advisory Group, as well as anyone just curious about the community we're hoping to build! In addition, we will be joined by key City staff from different departments who will briefly discuss some of the topics that you all mentioned most interested you during the survey this summer (such as affordable housing and transportation).

RSVP on EventBrite here or on Facebook here! All are welcome, so please drag along a few friends or roommates! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at youngsomervilleadvisorygroup@gmail.com. Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday!

Cheers,

Simon and the YSAG team

Some folks may know about The Long Now organization: http://longnow.org/
The Long Now Foundation was established in 01996* to develop the Clock and Library projects, as well as to become the seed of a very long-term cultural institution. The Long Now Foundation hopes to provide a counterpoint to today's accelerating culture and help make long-term thinking more common. We hope to creatively foster responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years.

Check out their past seminars to get an idea of the topics they cover: http://longnow.org/seminars/

It's been up and running for a long time in San Francisco. But those of us on the east coast feel left out of the seminars and events (although I do stream many of the talks and enjoy those, at least before I fall asleep).

Anyway--some regional fans of Long Now are beginning to organize a local chapter for talks and events. The inaugural meeting will be Tuesday, Nov 17, 6:30pm at The Burren. We'll be clustering out in the front area somewhere, not sure how big this will be just yet. From the email I got:
With no agenda, this is simply an opportunity to meet other area Long Now members and have a casual discussion about what we'd like to see in a local Long Now group - and get to know each other.

If you know and like this organization, or might like to hear more, gather with us. If we have a quorum and sufficient interest, maybe this will be a regular thing. More formal organizational stuff to come.

Hey! Are you in the Boston / Camberville area with an interest in the intersection of open source and education technology? This is something I'm very passionate about, and I'm trying to organize a meetup of like-minded people to talk about and contribute to OSS projects that are helping to make education more flexible and accessible. If you're interested, just RSVP here. Once we've got enough people, we'll try to find a date, time, and topic that works for everyone!

Tonight (Tuesday) is the second of two "visioning sessions" to find out what the community wants to see for the future of Davis Square. The Mayor's Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development is in the middle of a neighborhood planning process, part of the Somerville by Design series, that will create a neighborhood plan to guide planning efforts in the neighborhood over the next 20 years, as well as identifying some projects and priorities for the immediate future.

Tonight's meeting includes fun, interactive, visual exercises to gather feedback on what's working, what's not, and what people want to see in the neighborhood. We had a great turnout at the last meeting and we'd love to keep up the momentum tonight.

Hi all,
I'm posting to DSLJ because our Arlington group (at least when I was in it, in 2011-12) had a lot of crossover with Somerville!

Elise, the longtime moderator/gem of the Friday morning JF&CS group at the Calvary church is moving to Seattle. Many of us are thankful for her 10+ years of volunteer service and are having a fun informal reunion in her honor this Thursday at Magnolia, starting at 4:30 PM.

For more information (including info about the scrapbook in progress - deadline is today or arrive early at the event):

Hope to see you there!

PS: please pass this along to other parents that you know!

I've lived in Davis for 3 years but was an out of stater before that. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in May and we are both in our late 20s. We are the first of our friends to have kids, so I am interested in any local pregnancy/parenting groups I might look into joining. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you :)

Howdy!

I'm hoping to find a couple of spots here in Davis that could handle 15-20 people for weekly meetups and whatnot, hopefully with a projector for speakers, etc. Any suggestions?
