I'm interested in re-discovering technologies that were abandoned because, at the time, some necessary asset was impossible, impractical, or imperfect, but that would be workable today. I believe the blue LED was created in that way.
Interested in making things with wire, wood, electrons, steam, and bagels. When the projects don't work, at least you can eat the bagels.
Great space, good folks, no pressure. Karl and the other makers made it perfectly easy to just drop in and be part of the evening. A lot of groups make it feel like you're on the outside, trying to peek in through a window. These folks, on the other hand, were 100% welcoming and inclusive. Had a great time talking with Karl and meeting some of the others. Looking forward to the next gathering. Here's some video from our April 18, 2013 meeting: http://youtu.be/bEPIt31GQPo
