Hackerspace Update

Hello everyone,
Quite a bit has been happening with the group the last few weeks. Weekly meetings are going well and there has been an interest group formed for building a Scanning Tunneling Electron Microscope using (among other things) an arduino, some piezoelectric elements and a fiber of fiberglass. We now have an IRC channel registered on the freenode network, so come and join us in #solidstatedepot if you’re online. We are planning to have a get together in a few weeks. The date and location have not been finalized yet but picture beer, pizza and possibly BBQ in one of Boulder’s beautiful parks. We are still on the hunt for a suitable location for the space, as well as actively inviting new visitors and members to come and check out what we’re all about.

Presentations tonight at DLC Bechtel Collaboratory on CU Campus

We’re having an event August 10th to present some projects that members have been working on and also to make new friends in the community. The event is open to the public and should run about 2.5 hours. We’ll have a brief introduction and then each presenter will have the floor to talk about their project(s) and do a little Q & A.

Location: DLC Bechtel Laboratory, CU Campus.
Time: 6pm-9pm

Contact: dan@dan-db.com

Solid State DepotWelcome to the home of the Solid State Depot – Boulder’s very own Hackerspace/Makerspace. We are a group of like-minded individuals intent on destroying the world.. wait, I mean.. Intent on working together to inspire and enjoy the love of doing things by hand! We meet on a weekly basis in the Boulder, CO area in order to gather our forces so that one day (in the near future) we can expand into a space of our own!

We are currently hunting for an affordable space to build our workshop.
