    This is about MAKE, not the Raspberry Pi. If anything, you should be happy that people are going to meet up and discuss useful applications for the Pi. It has great potential and it's sparking a resurgence in the micro PC market. Even VIA's trying to take a stab at it! http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/13/01/17/2246218/via-unveils-79-rock-and-99-paper-arm-pcs [slashdot.org]

    Stuff looks promising indeed, it's just sad that so many people refuse to even consider the possibilities.

    It is indeed sad. Fortunately, it's mostly only the slash dot crowd that is
    having trouble thinking outside the box. The popularity of the Pi is
    bringing millions of folks to the world of Linux for the first time and
    introducing them to an enterprise class OS that they have never experienced.
    The popularity of Unix was due to the fact that most universitys had Unix
    because it was free and all the CompSci students got to take that knowledge
    out into the world when they left. This will happen again with Linux on the
    Pi and might even result in a real "year of the Linux desktop".

    So, it's an "International Maker Meetup". What's this "6-8pm PST" crap, then? Wikipedia tells me it could be Philippine Standard Time (UTC+8), Pakistan Standard Time (UTC+5), or Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8).

    If you want hold an international meetup, use an international standard for time. UTC or GTFO...
