[Junto] Picking the lock of your Silly Con Valley provisioned digital cage and getting started owning your computer is easier than it seems.

Filed under: JWRD — Robinson Dorion @ 17:09

For our September Junto we're returning to Teka Pizza.

We've been inspired to create the Junto from reading Benjamin Franklin, whose Junto was a group of twelve that met in private and were dedicated to mutual betterment. JWRD's Junto is also dedicated to mutual betterment, but doesn't have headcount limits in principle and the worthy public is welcome to attend. The goal is to get interesting, resourceful people together on a regular basis and have someone present on an important topic that, if applied, will make the attendees more resourceful individually and strengthen the coordination within the group.

Past topics include :
