Status of Communication

  • Right now we are using Meetup and Google Groups. However, Google Groups was found not to be very favorable.


HackerSpace in Innovation Depot (?)

Everyone Introduced themselves

Discussed goals of group as educational space, skill share

Seth: We should have two types of meetings: Group Projects and Open Work Nights. These two will cover the gamut if some are not interested in group project.

developmental meetings could be incorporated into project meetings: a short discussion before we start building

Being a nomadic group for a while will help us learn what we need from a space

Seth: we need a statement of purpose

We also need a name

MJ: Introduced Innovation Depot, the opportunity for working with them / being affiliated

Groups we should get in touch with about workshops / members :

  • Artplay
  • Bici Bike Coop

We need another form of communication besides Google Groups.

  • Houston suggested Subreddit
  • Katie Suggested Proboards

Other social networking sites could be useful like Flickr and Facebook (especially for events)

Decided on Houston's Robot welding station for the first group project meet up, Tuesday, April 17th 6 pm at his house David will set up an event on meetup.com
