Lubricating the Network

The term ?networking? has been almost completely co-opted by computer culture, and when not referencing connected digital devices, it is spoken in slightly negative intonations, defining the ?dishonest? chore of socializing to further a career. Thankfully, interesting people always find a way to make talking about work fun. The folks at UK based have put together a ?Networking Party,? inviting people from all disciplines to get together and share information about their creative endeavors. Five speakers will be present to discuss collaborative work. Computers, an Internet connection, data projectors, and a bar will be available to help facilitate conversations. The event takes place on 14 June from 3PM till late at the Deluxe in London. --Ryan Griffis
