Last night marked the inaugural dinner of the “Subversive Supper” movement in Boston: a private dinner for 16 created with the hopes of bringing tech hackers and food industry pros together to experience food in a more informal environment than possible at a restaurant.
I’m interested in how geeks, hacker, and makers create community through food events. What is the inspiration behind creating the events? How do they sustain themselves long-term? What prevents a group from stagnating, becoming “just” a group of regulars? What advice would you give someone considering starting up such a group?
