Our First Space!

We had a look at a potential space last Friday, and it looks like we finally have the green light on a starter space! We will be meeting there for the first time this Tuesday (11/2). This also means membership dues begin. Please be prepared to bring your $50 monthly membership dues this week. The space has plenty of room to set up tables and workbenches, but we’ll hold off on bringing too much equipment until we’ve met at the space for the first time. Be sure to thank John English and Kurt (our new landlord) for their help and patience. We’ll have pictures posted soon. So, our next meeting will be

Tuesday, November 2nd, 7:30pm
Kurt’s Antique Restoration
2200 Central Ave, Suite G,
Boulder, CO 80304

See you all there!

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.
