Tuesday Scheduling Change

A quick reminder, we’ve gone back to weekly membership meetings.

That’s right – we’re having full meetings every Tuesday at 8pm.  Board meetings will happen at 7pm.

Quick facts about this change:

  • 300 Seconds of Fame will begin immediately following the membership meeting and will continue as a monthly event on the second Tuesday of every month. Sign up with Anne if you want to have 300 seconds of your very own.
  • This month’s Guided Tour will be the last of the series for the foreseeable future.
  • The extremely fun 5th Tuesday Potlucks will also continue (immediately following the membership meeting).

300 Seconds of Fame: Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday!

300 Seconds of Fame this Tuesday:
You have 300 seconds. Make it count.

Last month we had an action-packed 300 Seconds of Fame, featuring two!–count ’em–two! related talks about pimping your work and raising funds; two!–count ’em–two! musical performances that rocked our little house; anecdotes and ideas via the balloon factory and video surveillance; a first look at a new way to use an arduino; how YOU could go watch a robot competition; and some facts about why we use our brains the way we do. How meta.

This month, we’ll have wasps (but not in-house, I hope), a sure-to-be-controversial look at password hacking, some noises out of Tomer, and more! But that “more” might require YOU. Yes, YOU.

Want to get in front of the microphone and live up to your 300 seconds of fame? Drop us a note.

If not, come along for the ride! Sure to be entertaining. Come on in at 6 or later, and we’ll start these up around 8.

p.m., that is. Since I’m sure not going to come out at 6 a.m.

And if you can’t make it, we’ll try to be sure the ustream’s up and running for you to enjoy from the comfort of your laptop. Or desktop, I suppose, if you’re all old-school. But if you’re trying it from an iPad, you’ll be SOL. Just FYI.

Be there or have less fun. I swear at least one of the 300Seconders will have better jokes than this post. Seriously.

Last month we had our inaugural 300 Seconds of Fame, featuring a wild and wooly tour through Peoplehacking (Four Formulae For The Reduction Of Operational Mass or The Engineers’ Guide to Weight Loss), Maker Faire, photographers rights, a RepRap update, and the NEW and IMPROVED solution for HACKERSPACE maintenance: BRAWNDO! (which evidently makes you good at yelling).

Tomorrow we have more great (but short!) performances to enjoy, including some EXTREMELY AWESOME facts about neuroanatomy, fiddling around, an anonymous committee, some digeridooing, arduino radio, and how to renounce your legal rights to your creations.

Read the full monty about 300 Seconds of Fame and what else the night is about via our wiki.

But to really experience the night you have to be there! Or, if you can’t, you get demoted to watching the ustream. SO BE THERE!

I should really lay off the BRAWNDO.
