Make:OC - Build Team & Communication Plan

In our last meeting we brainstormed ideas and came up with a nice mix of short-term and long-term projects.   The people who suggested projects were encouraged to jump in and start researching the plans in preparation for this next meeting.   At this Meet-up we'll make one of Lord Kelvin's aparatuses and further discuss the plans of the long-term projects.  To get an idea of what Lord Kelvin's Thunderstorm is, here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_XjE953EHc

The Thursday Meet-up was cancelled because it was a repeat of this meeting and the facility is only available on Wednesday this week.


Thank you Tim for arranging the meeting place!

    I wasn't able to make it last time but would like to present a project idea. It's an Instagram hash tag printer.

      I have (or, technically, my daughter has) an Eggbot. It has a broken part that needs to be replaced....can someone lasercut or 3D print it for me if I give the design?

      Sorry, hopefully we'll be all straightened out next week.

    Arman cannot make it tonight so there will be no building of Lord Kelvin's Thunderstorm. We will reschedule that for next week.

    March 20, 2013

  • Arman B.

    I don't think I can make it tomorrow, there is a dinner meeting scheduled. I can bring the materials next week instead for the Lord Kelvin Thunderstorm.

    Hi...is this event targeted at a specific project? I thought the event the following day (Thurs.) was where "project leaders" were going to present their basic proposals to the entire group. Is that still correct?

    • bequi

      Allan, no this is a general discussion for all projects.

    I'd like to start a discussion thread about building the Makers Faire Greeter robot (code name Big Liz Makers grEATER).

    Can we have a meetup started with the date Aug 17th so that we could use it as a project blog?

    March 15, 2013

    • bequi

      Did you want me to set that up for you, Sergei? Members can create events and you are welcome to do that if you'd like. I love the Greeter bot idea!

      March 18, 2013

    • Sergei G.

      I don't see any way to create event - maybe only Group organizers have authority... Could you please create it, and I and others will just use it as a blog. Thank you!

    Hi Tim, I belong to many Meetups and the email I received was a bit nebulous, and I almost deleted it without reading. Consider adding more info to your titles. For instance, add Make:OC to each title and add it again to the description, so us email scanners have two opportunities to recognize the group : ) Thanks

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
