May 22nd - Web & Wifi; Security & Privacy

Tim Fowler will be presenting "WTF Wifi?!" and exposing common misconceptions about our safety, security, and privacy when using Wifi--both public and private. If you do work from a coffee shop, you'll want to hear this talk.

Jason Neal will be presenting "How the heartbleeds" covering the recent OpenSSL security hole. Other than the heartbleed's not pretty.

Join us at OpenWorks @ 2 N Main St. Greenville, SC. Talks start at noon. Discussion continues until we've solved all known problems...or until we need to get back to fixing them.

Bring your lunch, a friend, and some ideas for the next meet-up.

See you Friday!

OpenUpstate/OpenDataDay2014 on Github

We now have an OpenDataDay2014 repo ready on Github. We'll we using that before, during, and after the event to share data, docs, designs, and code. Grab a ticket (they're free!) and we'll get you added as a Team member.

We're actively looking for open data--especially related to South Carolina or the Upstate (or the cities therein) specifically. If you've got some--or are up for making some!--we'd love to have you join us on the Wiki even if you can't make it to the event.

See you Saturday!
