We’ll meet up in Gather.town
– Socializing &
Discussion 

12 noon EDT*  every Saturday
(*) 17:00 UTC/GMT

also immediately after the CoM on the 21st of each month

You must be on the guest list to enter the space.

To check that you are on our list, or to request access if you are new to this, please send an email 48 hours ahead to gather@g4gfoundation.org.

Having started with the 2021 October Virtual Celebration of Mind, we use Gather.town as a way to mingle and chat after each of the presentations.  Over fifty people from the G4G community engaged with each other in the space after the presentations, and we could all see and talk to each other. The space has been used in two ways: First, to meet in the same Gather space after after each CoM. (Those are on Zoom at 12 noon ET on 21st of each month. You can check the latest listings here. So the Gather sessions will start around 1pm ET on those days). Second, every Saturday at noon, 12pm ET, to meet and exchange on a given theme (initially there were two rooms, the one without a theme was dropped). Theme – The themes have changed each week and are announced in our Friday News. If you are interested in spearheading one such themed session contact us via support@g4gfoundation.org. Starting on Saturday, 4th March 2023, each FIRST Saturday of the month  runs a thematic session revolving around “Pencil & Paper Puzzlers”
Pencil & Paper Puzzlers
Monthly First Sat 
Noon ET (Atlanta Time).*

(*) 17:00 UTC/GMT
This forum will provide enthusiasts an opportunity to discuss the creation, solution, and layout of pencil-and-paper puzzles.  Our first meeting will focus on the format of these monthly meetings, which will include the critique of participants’ original puzzles by P&PP.  Caveat:  this forum will NOT be looking at traditional puzzles (like Sudoku, unless the creator adds an unusual twist), interactive puzzles (such as those done in a browser or on a phone), or 3D puzzles (like Rubik’s cube).
