Let's discuss what we want out of the Group.

Seems like a reasonable request - points of business for this meeting:

1) What should be our first experiment?  

I ran into the creators of the OpenPCR machine in San Jose recently, and learned that they were launching a new business by selling all-in-one kits for sequencing single SNPs - all we would need is a PCR machine.  If that seems too trivial however, I could also teach a Bioinformatics seminar on designing primers and we could design our own assays using their system.

2) 23andMe Discussin

I am signing up for 23andMe, so I thought I'd reach out to anyone else who had used them or other personal genotyping technologies.  One interesting project for the more computer-inclined among us might be to design a tool to better explain and visualize the technology and the results to non-scientists. 

3) Hackerspace Discussion

Its hard to do DIYbio without gear, and its hard to collect expensive, bulky gear without a space.  I want to talk about reaching out to the rest of the local hacker and DIY community about finding a space where we can experiment and store our stuff.

    Seems like a reasonable request. Done.

    We seem to have a bunch of people interested, should we consider setting a date and actually getting the ball rolling?
