    Digital Libraries for Thinking Machines

    We’re thinking, with our own personal wetware, that the Harry Ransom Center’s jam-packed stronghold, replete with world-class collections of documents and artifacts from all over, is the perfect venue for hosting this talk by Brewster Kahle, founder and digital librarian of the Internet Archive. Kahle’s magnum opus, begun in 1996, preserves more than 99 unique petabytes of data – the books, web pages, music, television, and software of our modern cultural heritage – and works with library and university partners around the world to create a digital library that’s accessible to all. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    Goblin Guild

    Before there was World of Warcraft, before there was even a World Wide Web, there was Dungeons & Dragons. Whether you’re a curious newbie or a longtime player, go IRL and find fellow adventurers at this free D&D meetup each Monday at 7, where one-shots, ongoing campaigns, and fun activities will be on the map. Come early to snag a killer po’boy and a brew or brewski from Cherrywood, and email any questions to [email protected]. : – Kat McNevins

    Silent Book Club ATX

    Silent Book Club rejects the stuffy tradition of the reader gatherings of yore. In these local meetups, there’s no group discussion, or even required reading. Instead, the “introvert happy hour” invites book lovers to gather and read their own selections in silence, enjoying the company of those doing the same thing. After an hour of parallel play, the event opens up to (optional) socializing. Hosted by various local businesses, Monday’s congregation finds an especially fitting home at Vintage Bookstore, the cozy East 11th Street shop that features not espresso, but a wine bar. – Carys Anderson
