The Great DUSP MeetUp: Empowering Alumni-Student Action

The blog of the MIT Department of Urban Studies & Planning Alumni-Student Group

Request for help: where *do* DUSPers meetup?

I need your help.  I’m trying to identify all the points where DUSPers meetup.  ALL of them: in-real-life, virtual, public, private, semi-public, semi-private, ad hoc, informal, formal, local, regional, national, international, etc.

Frank, Hattie, and I are going to turn all this info into a nifty, dynamic diagram and publish it by Friday 6/5/09 (just in time for graduation.. 🙂

So, please share what you know.  You can send me (or Hattie, or Frank) a direct email, or you can comment on this post.  Whatever works best for you.

Just please report back with your knowledge early and often!

Also, keep in mind that it would be great to keep things relatively simple.  We’d like to start with the points that have a DUSP-focus; we can always scale up for a future iteration.
