After a short status update, we'll divide up into interest groups. Currently we're thinking of these 6 groups as a starting point:
• Electronics (e.g. Arduino, soldering)
• Programming/computers (e.g. Linux, Raspberry Pi, software)
• Digital fabrication (e.g. 3D printing and CNC)
• Arts and crafts
• Robotics (which actually cuts across several others).
Each interest group will be asked to discuss and generate a wish list of equipment & space they think would be needed for (a) minimal entry level, (b) reasonable working set, (c) dream workshop. We'll ask for approximate budgets and other details, too since that will help in our planning.
