Save the Date!

Tinderbox Weekend San Francisco was a rousing success, so we're planning more Tinderbox Weekends for Spring. We're looking for good dates and great places -- please email bernstein@eastgate.com with suggestions.

We'd like to have at least two Tinderbox Weekends in Europe; possibilities include Dublin, Manchester, and Copenhagen. Have another suggestion? Want to arrange a special workshop? Let us know!

Who'll be there?

We're expecting a small gathering of Tinderbox enthusiasts from throughout the country -- and indeed the world. Some will be Tinderbox beginners, some will be experts. Mark Bernstein, Tinderbox's designer, will lead sessions and will be available throughout for discussions. Elin Sjursen will present her fantastic Introduction To Tinderbox.

Do I Need To Register Now?

Not yet -- but please let us know if you're coming!

What if I can't possibly come this weekend?

We're going to offer a corresponding membership to people who simply cannot make it in person. Think of this as a sign of support for Tinderbox.

We'll send you handouts -- either on paper or CD -- and perhaps we'll be able to set up an electronic link during part of the meeting to field your questions. It'll be much better to attend, but if you simply can't make it, a corresponding membership might be nice.

What topics will be covered?

The program will doubtless change many times over the coming weeks: send your suggestions!

Saturday: Techniques Day

Sunday: Frontiers and Futures

I Have A Great Idea For A Session!

Special Deal for Alumni?

Yes! Attendees from Tinderbox Weekend Boston may register for half price. Alumni of any eNarrative conference receive a 25% discount. Please mention the alumni discount under special instructions if applicable.

Where will this happen?

We'll be at the HOTEL REX near Union Square:( 562 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 Reservations: 800.433.4434)

The REX is a lovely little boutique hotel, newly renovated, and featuring lots of original art from San Francisco artists and craftspeople. Be sure to tell them you're with EASTGATE for a special discount.

What time?

We start at 10am on Saturday (registration and coffee at 9:30), which will give travelers plenty of time to catch a morning shuttle. We'll wrap up by 3:30pm on Sunday, so people returning to the East coast and Europe can catch Sunday evening flights.

What's included?

Snacks and nifty handouts. Probably some exclusive sample files. Several excellent and inexpensive restaurants serve lunch nearby.

Can I connect?

We expect to have WiFi connectivity, so bring your laptops!
