I'd like a status update on the approval of Albuquerque's Quelab hackerspace fiscal sponsorship paperwork.  Or will this be part of the individual calls after the main call?


Your paperwork is approved! 



Did anyone else get this message? I've asked if they'd be willing to pop onto the call and give us a quick overview.

Proper Television is developing a new series about Makers—people with an intense passion for building all manner of contraptions for all manner of purposes. We’re currently in the midst of casting characters for the series, and have been reaching out to various groups in an effort to build a Dream Team of Makers. Your organization seems pretty dialled in to this community.

Without belabouring the details, the series will revolve around our team of Makers facing off against other groups in maker-related competitions. Competitions like:

-Modifying a lawnmower into a 70mph drag racer

-Designing catapults to hurl pumpkins across football fields

-Constructing Rube Goldberg machines

-Building human-powered submarines

Our goal is to find multifaceted individuals with aptitude in numerous fields pertinent to these sorts of projects. People with experience in things like engineering, electronics, physics, welding, pyrotechnics, construction, engines and industrial design—these are the sorts we’re looking to get in touch with.

Is this something that might interest you or your group? If so, we’d love to hear from you! If not, we could very much use your help spreading the message to as many Makers as possible.

Thank you for your time, keep up the great work!

Yeah, Jigsaw and list got that.

I'm wary, for somewhat obvious reasons for anyone who knows me.


I'd like to talk about The School Factory setting up some more hosted applications/servers like this OpenAtrium instance for use by member spaces. I'd like to help.

1) Generic VPS Hosting

2) Monitoring

And to a lesser extent

3) VPN

4) VoIP




I had something come up and will not be able to make the call.

Huge thanks to Willow for talking to us earlier today - we're feeling ready for our big meeting tomorrow!
