csv soundsystem is an informal group that works on projects around journalism and computer programming. Generally, it's a way to keep in touch and talk with people who are working on interesting projects, or who are just generally interesting people.
In the past, a subset of folks have worked on an actual project, such as Treasury.IO, but working on something is by no means required. Some people are interested in music-based projects, as the name would suggest, but no rules exist. If you want a weekly place to talk with people or work on a side project in journalism or programming, csv soundsystem is a place to do that.
A shifting cast of characters meets in the downstairs Jazz Room (where there so far hasn't been any actual jazz) at Whynot Coffee at Christopher and Gay Streets starting around 6:45pm until 11pm every Tuesday.
Whynot Coffee has two locations so be careful not to end up in the East Village.
We also usually write reminder emails with a song or poem whose lyrics have been changed into something journalism or programming related. They take some time to write so sometimes we don't have one. We feel really bad each time we don't include a poem. If you would like to write one, or be added to the email list, contact Michael or Brian.
We also end each email with this line, because traditions are grand and it's also kind of a SQL-pun:
Join us, won't you?
