lists.aq.org and polyboston.org down
Due to a hardware failure, polyboston.org have been down since sometime this weekend. That’s why things have been eerily quiet the last few days. Sigh.

I believe all the data on the drive is intact, and I’ve started work on bringing up a new server, but it’ll be a few days, I’m afraid.

(Many thanks to the administrator of another list hosted on the same hardware, who noticed she couldn’t get to her lists and let me know.)

Polyamory in the News
What's the big wide world hearing and saying about us? Quite a lot.

How are the media presenting polyamory to your worried mom in Dubuque? Sometimes, in interesting and insightful ways.

If you haven't been keeping up with Polyamory in the News in the last three months — or haven't friended the nice LiveJournal feed for the site — here's some of what you missed:

Monthly PolyBoston Dinner Tonight -- All Welcome!
Please join us tonight (Monday) at 7:00 PM at Bertucci's at the Alewife T stop for the monthly PolyBoston dinner. Newbies encouraged! This event is an excellent way for those new to PolyBoston to get to know people, and also for old friends to catch up.

Bertucci's is on the ground level of the Alewife station just outside the exit, very easy to get to on the T, and there is plentiful parking for those coming by car. We'll meet in the bar area at 7:00 and wait to be seated. These dinners are fun and there is always great conversation. Feel free to bring your partner(s), and Bertucci's is kid-friendly, too.

Please RSVP here, or PM me through LJ if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!

An awesome poly event
Some of you may know me from when I was at MIT through 2002. Or perhaps from Intercon, or Arisia, or Baitcon, or through various mutual friends. But today I'm not posting about any of those. Today I want to talk about PolyCamp Ontario 2009.

I know what you're thinking: Ontario is far away! Why would you want to go all the way to central Ontario for a poly camping event? Here's my stab at a few reasons to make the trek to our site, the Mansfield Outdoor Centre.
  • Come to see our Guest of Honor, Cunning Minx, the fantabulous and sexy hostess (pictured here) of the Poly Weekly podcast. (Not familiar? Even if you'd never come to PolyCamp, I urge you to check it out -- Poly Weekly is awesome).
  • Interested in attending a family-friendly poly event with workshops, panels, experiential workshops, and social events, but getting sticker shock from the prices? PolyCamp Ontario is only $89 US at current exchange rates. Other nearby poly events charge on the order of $385. They include food, but food for a weekend shouldn't cost $300!
  • Perhaps you like the idea of helping out an event that is committed to remaining accessible to people of all incomes. Most poly events focus on paying big name speakers to draw a crowd, which jacks up the prices. PolyCamp Ontario's aim is to emulate the model exemplified by scifi cons like Arisia -- we believe we can put on a fantastic event without spending exorbitant amounts of money. If supporting the event is part of your motivation, this is the year to make it happen -- we're making the transition from a small private venue to a public venue. It's more expensive, but it will give us the room to grow. And as we grow, the price will drop again.
  • If you know me... *bats eyes* *little girl voice* because you want to see me and support me as PolyCamp Ontario's chair? You know you wannna!
Still not convinced? Feel free to ask me any questions, or visit our website for more information, at www.polycamp.ca. I'd also like to invite you to listen to this clip by Minx about the event. (Please note that the part about the hot tub is wrong -- we don't have a hot tub this year, but we do have a swimming pool).

Not interested?
Please do us a favour and take a few moments to forward this to anyone who you think would be interested who is within a days drive of our venue.

The boring details
The event takes place August 14 through 16. It's about a 10 hour drive from Boston via Niagara Falls, or an 11.5 hour drive if you go via the Thousand Islands -- a beautiful drive. If you fly into Toronto it's only about an hour north of the Airport; there are lots of beds available indoors if you don't want to lug your camping equipment on an airplane.

Current Mood: chipper

Neat YouTube intro to poly
Here's an excellent 6-minute video explaining poly for newbies, built on interviews at last year's Poly Pride Picnic in New York. First appeared on BET.
