Introduction to Hyperloop

This first Meetup is to have an overview discussion of the Hyperloop concept and bring together folks who would like to learn more. 

At tonight's meetup we'll be discussing the initial Musk proposal in general, and specifically his call for the open-source community to begin refining and iterating on his alpha version.

The vehicle for this is The Hyperloop Foundation

You can find & join our Github repo: https://github.com/thehyperloopfoundation

    Hey all!

    I'm a business major at Oregon State University and I'm very interested in Elon Musk's hyperloop, as well as most things Elon Musk. I just wanted to introduce myself - this is my first time on meetup but I'm really eager to see what its all about, learn about interesting technologies and meet some cool people.

    Anyone want to work on designing and building a functioning open source 3d-printable scale hyperloop setup? I can do mechanical design, electronics, and programming, but I'd love to find others interested in actually doing work building it!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
