Event Location: 
Cobo Hall: W2-58
Full Description: 

In a "Techie Congress" process taking place in countries all over the world and specifically and consciously leading up to the USSF's "Congress", politically progressive techies from all over the United States and other countries will gather together to develop a set of "principles" describing our responsibilities we have towards the progressive movement, the responsibilities it has towards us and the rights we have that it must observe for us to all move forward.

We will then distribute the principles to everyone at the Social Forum and propose them to the USSF's People's Assembly for ratification. The other Congresses in other countries will already have done that and this On that basis, we will begin to build the kind of relationships inside the movement that will move us all forward.
