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.

=== 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
