Working Group: Permanent Physical Space

For those interested in determining the action items and resources to get a physical kid friendly hackerspace up and running. Be prepared to take on action items with due dates.

Each meeting we'll choose a different part of LA that we are considering for our first space.

Agenda:

1) Quick meet & greet (30 secs per person)

2) Discuss physical space requirements & rate each - e.g. use, walkable street, outdoor area, parking, nearby subway, etc.

3) Discuss areas of LA that meet requirements

4) Assign action items

5) Agree on next meetup date/time/place

We will meet at Urth Caffe for our fist meetup because:

  • DTLA is central
  • In the arts district
  • Affordable - some spaces are donated
  • Near Little Tokyo and the mall where some kids hang
  • Near to places like sci-arc
  • Near a subway line
  • Near bridge to Boyle Heights
  • Street parking

    When I organize meetups usually have the people that RSVP show up so I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout. Many faces from the first LA Young Makers meetup at Crashspace.

    There are a lot of skilled people in the meetup group with amazing super powers. I know this group can get the space up and running before the end of the year.

    Go team!

    We're gung ho on getting a space off the ground by 2013. I think we'll do it.

    Just noticed you asked me a question. I think Urth is a good choice and better than the other place! See you Monday.

    Downtown LA will work for me also. I live about 30 minutes south of downtown so it would be nearly ideal.

    Hey Luz - what about that place we met at in DTLA for the STEM thing? I liked that because people could order food.
