  • Discussed election stuff, and who is running
    • Secretary is still unfilled. Elly declines, Shadoxx is resistant
    • unless more people are nominated, the Board will be the only "real" vote with more people running than spots
    • Ryan: by-laws are on the wiki if you want to see responsibilities
  • Shadoxx--create Marketing director position?
    • space has grown in membership, more of a need for a marketing director now
    • Shadoxx made some points supporting this idea, brief discussion followed.
    • This would be a modificaiton of the by-laws: requires 70% of members to vote YES
    • If there seems to be support for the idea, expect a vote in the next few weeks.

  • Hive Stuff
  • Shapeoko frame is assembled!
    • More will happen at 2nd build night tomorrow
  • Lathe--vote for tool post needs to get posted to mailing. Jon and Jim are on it.
  • Player 2 has not shown up for the large format printer yet (but still planning to do so.)
  • welding table: still working on it, will send out for a vote...sometime
  • Jon--CAC night: week and a half away on July 24
    • theme: rapid prototyping an manufacturing!
    • might be able to bring shapeoko!
    • will try to arrange meeting with our contact at CAC
    • interested individuals continue discussion after the meeting
    • if you have a project that shows off 3D printing/Laser cutting/prototying, we would like to bring it!

  • Marvin (via IRC)--can the Shapeoko build tomorrow have a google hangout?
    • yes--we can make it happen
  • Parking Passes--for large objects and projects
    • there was some discussion of this on the mailing list
    • basic idea--everything cluttering up the space needs to have a "pass" to be there
    • this will prevent abandoned projects sitting around forever and taking up valuable real estate
    • we tried this idea a year or two ago but it didn't reach critical mass of people adopting it.
    • other spaces are doing it. for example: http://www.hackpittsburgh.org/wiki/index.php?title=Property_Tags
  • Jon--3rd Saturday cleanup this weekend. 1:30 and on!
    • help keep hive clean, or shame will be upon your house unto the 7th generation.
  • Ryan--remember maker faire, we want cool stuff for display!
