Web With Molly is delighted to invite all kind folks to a ‘Technology and Society’ topical event on the 27th of February 2020.
Discussion will focus on the World Wide Web and its meaning to all humanity as individuals and societies. The event is a broad discussion about how the Web has influenced individuals, communities and society at large.
After noon, we’ll make our way to a local favorite restaurant for celebration and friendship between creative, inspired folks!
This is a free event but in order to reserve the most accessible and scenic ramada, please RSVP here or on our Facebook Page no later than February 1, 2020. Big help if you include number of visitors, a contact email address and if you require a reserved accessible parking spot or have any other needs with which Web With Molly would want to be aware.WWM
Nature Not Computers
The opening and conversation-intensive portion of the day begins outdoors in a sheltered, accessible ramada in the Saguaro National Monument (West) outside of Tucson, Arizona, USA.
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The morning begins with hot beverages, juices, fruits and any pastries attendees might like to bring for themselves and/or to share with the group. We will be outdoors under a Ramada in the middle of a living Saguaro Forest. The focus is we as humans-first, then as people interested in technology, media, communications and most importantly: Using Our Tools for Acts of Good.
A good starting question for folks is: How can we as the Web’s users, makers, advocates and individuals bring out the best in the Web as we adapt to contemporary demands?
And if at all possible, leave your technology turned off and your humanity turned all the way up to 11!
Disfrutamos La Comida Sonorense
After our conversations, we will meet and socialize at the consistently family-owned since 1949 historic Karichimaka Restaurant, shown in the related image in a promotional poster in the 1960s!
Check out the menu! Very fairly priced delicious food, a variety of dietary options and spice levels with a low-key, warm and friendly atmosphere.
It has been a local personal favorite since I was a child!
12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Lunch at the restaurant, socializing, enjoying and rejoicing in life and the rich culture and cuisine of the Sonoran region with like-minded friends. This is an unmoderated social time and people are encouraged to create personal, social and professional bonds!
Your food and beverages are self-pay but there is no event charge whatsoever except an enriching and rewarding experience for all.
Along with awareness of verbal and physical respect and appreciation of human differences Web With Molly strongly encourages the creation of all individuals and groups as safe havens.
Web With Molly is dedicated to ensuring that all event locations and resources provide real accessibility. Meaning, if a person wants to attend but needs a ride – that is acknowledged as an equally important form of access as is #A11Y #Access.
Do you need an interpreter? Information in another language or format? Please do not hesitate to ask, Web With Molly will do whatever possible to work to address all individuals who choose to participate are able to do so!
WWM seeks to be a loving and unconditional community “No Matter What” (as my dear husband often said)!
All leftover edible food you have purchased but do not want will be collected and distributed to local hungry homeless and street people in the region.
The desert is thorny with extremes in sunlight. Please dress in layers, wear boots with ankle protection, use sunscreen, a hat and a good pair of sunglasses.
There are often inconsistent and extreme weather changes. Keep aware of weather reports, do not drive into any marked or flooded area.
Do not set the desert on fire. This region burns. Smoke in enclosed, legal spaces and dispose all flammable material responsibly.
Further questions and concerns about desert life? Shout out in comments so I can track them
