The Internet of Many More Things - What's your inner futurist predict for 2015? - http://www.meetup.com/net2no...
Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) 2015 is just around the corner and our social streams are already loaded with predictions about what the "next big thing" will be in the coming months. While we appreciate the flood of insight from futurists, we're more interested in what the new year holds for you and New Orleans. So, what are your tech predictions for the coming year? • Are you building or looking for inspiration to create the next hottest app? • Got the latest "FaceBook killer" in the works? • Looking to solve big social / political / local issues? If you aren't sure what the new year has in store for you, then bring the problems you'd like to see solved in 2015 and socialize ideas with some pretty smart people. For example, here's one that could use brains on it: We know that consumption of big data, constantly streaming content, cloud computing and net neutrality are just a few hot topics now and entering 2015, but they also still causing big bottlenecks. If any group can come up... - Jessica Rohloff

Lifehacks Live: You Don’t Even Know What You Don’t Know! - http://www.meetup.com/net2no...
Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) We've all stumbled upon or created our own shortcuts to getting shit done. Well, as with everything else, there's now a buzzword for that - lifehacks! According to Urban Dictionary (the most reputable source on the Internet), a lifehack is defined as "a tool or technique that makes some aspect of one's life easier or more efficient." Legions of sites, like lifehacker.com, exist with the sole purpose of allowing individuals to share their suggestions on how to reduce chaos and make their lives more enjoyable. So instead of spending hours searching for solutions...alone, come prepared to share a valuable tip with your fellow Net2NO'ers. Here are a few areas of interest and hacks we love to get the ideas flowing: Tech Hacks - Ever read through Stack Overflow and thought, I know a better, easier way to do that? Well....we're waiting for you to share! Drunk Hacks - Ever thought to put your earbuds up your nose then open your mouth really wide to use it as a... - Jessica Rohloff

Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) Each year Net2NO invites the organizers of BarCampNola to present a compressed version of BarCamp, which we call MiniBar. So, what the hell is MiniBar? This jam packed evening of edutainment is an attempt to first explain what BarCampNola is and then encourage everyone to both attend - and more importantly present. Tritico will MC the three very brief 10-15 minute example talks showcasing the range of technical, creative and off-beat presentations so often heard during BarCamp. More will be revealed during MiniBar! New Orleans, LA 70115 - USA Tuesday, June 11 at 6:00 PM Attending: 18 Details: http://www.meetup.com/net2no... - Jessica Rohloff

Networking Happy Hour + Going Away Event for One of Our Own @ Booty’s - http://www.meetup.com/net2no...
Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) We know, we know...we suck. Well, that may be a bit harsh, but it's been tough keeping some consistency within our little (over 1,100 member) group. First, there were issues with venues, then it was our over-committed organizers. Well, here we go again but we've got some changes on the horizon, and if we can be brutally honest - we miss you. Thanks to an invitation from an amazing new space in the Bywater, we're "getting the band back together" and can't wait to hear what's up with everyone, both new and not so new. So with May right around the corner, let's make a date of it. Mark your calendar and plan to be there on the first Tuesday. Special thanks to our hosts for the May meetup, Booty’s, a hip, new bar/restaurant/gathering space in the Bywater. This space is also super welcoming of entrepreneurs setting up shop during the day (the owners actually run two national websites that they work on from the space and the internet is crazy fast).

Thankfully there are more resources than ever to keep you on track, many of which have been created right in your own backyard.

Breaking Down the Benefits of B-Corps: Now Available in Louisiana - http://www.meetup.com/net2no...
Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) So you likely know of wildly successful sites Etsy and Couchsurfing, but what you don't know is that their corporate status is as unique as their business models. Both of these online powerhouses are setup as B-corps (short for benefit corporations). In short, their business and revenue model combines social entrepreneurial spirit with a do-gooder nature - to the benefit of society, the environment and their investors (in that order). Why all the excitement over this NOW? Well, Lousiana recently became the eighth state in the nation, and the first in the South, to enact benefit corporation legislation. Which leads to our presenters for the evening: The Business of B-Corps: New Orleans City Business writer Jennifer Larino has been covering B-corps since before they were legal. From the journey through the halls of government, across the legislative floor to the adoption by the local business community as yet another business incentive, Larino will share... - Jessica Rohloff

Open Transit Data! Learn from the RTA data gurus - http://www.meetup.com/net2no...
Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) Transport for NOLA has been working with the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) for the past several months to call for and subsequently support the opening of their transit data. In March - the RTA released their GTFS (map / schedule data) and I'm thrilled to announce that in the coming days, the RTA will release the real-time location data for all buses and streetcars in their fleet. We've seen developers do a lot of exciting things with this data in other cities - check out how open transit data has been used in Portland and Boston. To access the data, register for a MyRTA account at http://www.norta.com... and then follow the links to 'Data Subscription'. Next week, TfN and the RTA are hosting a meeting for developers on the newly opened transit data. Now that the data is open - the rest is up to you. Come out, learn about the data and create useful websites, apps, text services and more to make riding transit easier in New Orleans! New... - Jessica Rohloff

Net2NO (NetSquared New Orleans) First and foremost, we are happy to announce that this month's meetup is sponsored by Google+ (thanks, G+!), and therefore there WILL be FREE BOOZE at this meetup. Hooray for G+ the beer sponsor! (Actually, the free drinks will be glasses of Eiffel's house wine, rather than beer, but same net result. Free drinks for Net2NO members!) Please note that we've decided to shake things up a bit, and this meetup will be at a NEW Bat Time, at a NEW Bat Place, but it's still on a Tuesday because we didn't want to shock you too much. The August Net2NO meetup is from 5pm-8pm at Eiffel Society on St. Charles. (You know that giant, weird-looking building you've always wanted to go into, but never quite got around to it? Now's your chance!) There will be free wine for as long as our tab lasts, so get there early! Parking shouldn't suck as much as it did over at 12 Bar; in fact, parking should be a breeze.
