Call for presentations for March 2nd Make:SF meeting

From: Make:SF F.
Sent on: Tuesday, February 26, 2008 8:20 AM
Hello Makers!

The next meeting at TechShop is coming up quickly! Last month we had a great turn out of 35+ people. (This announcement goes out on Facebook as well.) As with the last meeting we will be featuring projects by local makers, and that means YOU!

Do you have a project you'd like to show, are you prepping something for Maker Faire and need collaborators? Or perhaps starting off on a new effort and need some idea about where to get that right bit of obtanium? Share your thoughts with other local makers. We will have a video projector this time... (Thank you TechShop!) and I'll bring a video camera so that we can zoom in on the details.

Send a message back to me at [address removed] to reserve a 20 minute slot. We still have plenty of T-Shirts to hand out to presenters.

As with the last meeting where we got to see Shape Lock prototyping material:

I've invited a local business to bring in something of interest to makers. (Materials, tools, hackables.)

This month's meeting we will have a Pleo robotic dinosaur... with the skin off so that we can get a better idea of how it works. One of the engineers who developed the inner workings will be joining us to answer questions:

Margaret Lee, a Ugobe project manager brought Pleo to the Mars Bar for the San Francisco meeting and it drew quite a crowd.

I look forward to seeing you at TechShop
Sunday March 2nd 2-4pm

(Tours of TechShop are available after the meeting if you have not been there before.)

Feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions,

-Andrew
