An Everything & Everybody Get Together

This is our major monthly meetup, meant for everyone, not just specific projects. The more of us that can get together, the better.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.

On the agenda at this stage:

An overview of where we're up to (see this note in yammer for more on that: https://www.yammer.com/fml/notes/769577/)

A show & tell of other projects people are doing

Sharing new project ideas

Backcasting with Jose what's needed to make the Drone for Sea Shepherd Project happen

Kickoff the project to find a space (or a number of spaces) for the Lab (and to house our donated 3d printer!)

Sam Haywood will talk a little about the Open Table project running in Brunswick, and seeing if there is interest in doing something similar here

Update on the Street Library Project and how to get involved

Update on the Resource Mapping (http://map.footscraymakerlab.com) Project and how to get involved

Update on the Website Project (http://footscraymakerlab.com) and how to get involved

An introduction to Liquid Democracy by Jose

    wednesday is usually a bad day for me

    June 25, 2013

    • Dean

      ah, sorry Ayudh. We might change the day in the future. We will do our best to communicate what goes down, so at least you won't miss the opportunity to work on interesting projects if there's one going.

    I'm a bit concerned that not many people are attending this general meeting of the group. What do you think? How can we send the 121 (minus 8) members a reminder?

    June 25, 2013

    • Dean

      We can email everybody. Will do so now.

    Can I say I am a little confused by the street library planning and design part - has this group morphed into something else ?

      Fair comment Mike. We've not done a great job explaining what's happening to everyone. I've tried to put it all down in this note on yammer: https://www.yammer.com...­ (email [masked] or [masked] to get access to our yammer group, if you haven't already).

      Basically, we're holding a monthly meetup where we talk about everything, and what we need to do to support the creating of a Maker Lab and a community around it, propose Projects people might like to work together on and play with cool stuff that people bring.

      Out of those meetups, some projects have already started. Street Library and Resource Mapping are two of those. Anyone can join in with them, if they like.

      Projects can be proposed on Yammer, in person at meetings, or by setting up a Meetup event and seeing who is interested. I think the settings for this group are such that any member can start a meetup; let me know if you try and can't.

      The most important project I think, and the one we'll probably talk about most at the next Everybody meetup is the 'Finding a space where we can make and do stuff and share tools and whatnot' project. It obviously needs a better name, but if we can make that one happen, we're looking good.

    Do we want to have organising group meeting ant time beforehand?

    • Dean

      I think the organisers are going to try to get together some time beforehand - if we don't, that's ok. Sorry if I confused on Yammer somewhere!

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.
