Baltimore/DC IF Meetup

#1

After meeting up individually with some folks in the Baltimore/DC area who are interested in interactive fiction, I thought it was time to try organizing a meetup a shot. I want to keep the scope of this meetup broad for now and see what those who are interested in attending are interested in talking about! But in rough outline, I hope this will be a way for folks who are interested in interactive text-based things to share projects they’re working on, talk about what’s going on in the genre, and generally hang out.

The first meeting will take place at 3 PM on Sunday, March 1 at the Board and Brew, a coffeehouse in College Park, MD (groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/baltdcifmeetup.
