Hurricane; Next Meeting; Tech Volunteers

NY SPIN wishes to express our best wishes to you, your family, and colleagues for speedy recovery from the unparalleled damage and disruption of normal life we've all experienced or heard about this week.

We will make a decision by Tuesday, whether to move or postpone Simone Knight Brown's talk about Managing Agile Projects in a Waterfall Environment, scheduled for Thursday, November 7th, at Kaplan Test Prep, 395 Hudson Street (located in the zone with no electrical power still). 

Once the decision is made, we will send out another communication.
We've also just learned that NY Tech Meetup and New Work City are organizing volunteers with technology skills to help with relief efforts and help New York-area businesses and organizations get their technology back up and running after Hurricane Sandy. More info can be found here:
