We now have a bank account

Solid State Depot now has a bank account with Elevations credit union. Although we do not have our 501(c)3 paperwork in order to open a fee free account, we have a business account under the SSD name. This should enable us to better manage our funds as well as meet the requirements of SparkFun in order to get discounted big order pricing. Thank you John E., Dan Z., and Dan D. For taking time out of their busy days to set this up! Go hackerspace go! Membership dues checks can now be made out to Solid State Depot.

Our Wiki Is Online

All Systems Online.

Oh, right.. We have a wiki now! Please feel free to browse around and discover some of the exciting new interest groups that are springing up. You can also find some updates about ongoing projects and even read our Bylaws as we become slightly more official than we once were. We’re currently working on obtaining some office chairs, work benches and fold-up tables for our space as well as any electronic goods we can snag on the cheap (or free!). If you have any inquiries please direct them to donations@boulderhackerspace.com.

As always, we are accepting members. Come and attend one of our tuesday night open-to-the-public meetings and find out more!

First Meeting a Success

Our first meeting at the space was a success. We consumed mass quantities of pizza and discussed our plans for the near future. Dan Z. donated a desktop computer system and we now have enough paying members to tackle the rent. Next up we will try to get a solution for internet access in the space and will be exploring RFID technology for security. A wiki site is in the works for us to use in collaborating on interest groups as well as establishing a list of “things we need” to get our brains and hands working on even more exciting projects. Can we get a quad copter? We certainly have high enough ceilings to fly it. There’s also talk of building a loft. Finally, we’re planning to pull together a kickstarter video.. A whole lot going on. If you’re not yet a member, now is the time to get involved!
