Notes from the last meeting: 

=== Meeting ===

Again, we have switched venues! This time however, hopefully we have a 
permanent place with good facilities. As I understand, via the BBC we 
will have not shortage of quiet space, power, wifi and a projector!

Due to because it's not fun to have to walk around a strange city on 
your own, even if it is just a few steps, I suggest we meet at 
Manchester Oxford Road train station at about 12pm (look for geeks, 
laptops, t-shirts, signs saying "DFEY", stickers etc.) Once everyone has 
arrived, we will then move on to BBC building just down the road.
We aim to have finished by about 4pm and to have left the building by 4:30.

=== Sign Up ===

The BBC has insisted I give the a list of all participants by early 
Friday Morning, please do your best either sign up below, or email us so 
we can let them know.


If you think a contact number might be helpful on the day, email us and 
we will sort one out :)

=== About DFEY-NW ===

DFEY-NW (Digital Freedom in Education and Youth) is a group formed in 
response from a growing need in the Northwest of England for a group to 
encourage and promote young people's involvement with the free software 
community by creating a social space to make it more comfortable for 
young people to get involved with GLUGs and FSUGs.

If each of us have one object, and we exchange them, then each of us
still has one object.
If each of us have one idea, and we exchange them, then each of us now
has two ideas.   -  George Bernard Shaw
