Fourth Annual Techno-Swap-Fest
February 23, 2013 - 9am to 2pm
1745 West Nursery Road, Linthicum MD
Attention All Hobbyists
- Is your shop so cluttered you can barely work on your projects?
- Did you buy something online that didn’t fit into your plans?
- Are you still looking for that perfect gadget, part or tool?
If you answered YES or NO to any of these questions, you need to attend the 4th Annual Techno-Swap-Fest to buy, sell and gawk at all the precious junk that other hobbyists crave.
We want to send a big THANK YOU! to Mars Brown from New Orleans for sending us these awesome vinyl stickers.
I could not help but smile really big during yesterdays meeting. There was the real feeling of a hackerspace with Miles building a prop gun, all of us pitching in on the CNC Machine and a few of us tearing into a work related project of mine. Then to top it all off Logan from Baltimore SDIY stoped by and demonstrated his projects. We all had a great time.
Now we need to take th CNC apart and paint it.
Nick Farr stoped by Harford Hackerspace and shed some light on the 501(c)(3) process. He also shared some “good practice” points with us and The Node. Prior to Nicks arrival Harford Hackerspace and The Node had a long conversation about how the two organizations could collaborate or possibly merge. There was a lot of repetative questions asked but very little answers came of the discusssion.
Several members from both organizations put on the table the possible merge so long as the two organizations could agree on a suitable location. As of the end of the meeting on July 11th an agreement was not reached on the merge but both organizations agreed that our goals were similar and we would help each other in our efforts. A merge is not out of the question but it’s also not likely to happen in the immediate future. However the offer is still on the table from Harford Hackerspaces perspective.
Now that that intense meeting is over Harford Hackerspace will resume its normal activities on July 16 @ 7:30 pm in the Temporary Hackerspace Garage. E-mail email@example.com if you ever want to attend any meetings. We may even be able to schedule a meeting around your calendar.
Guest Nick Farr from HacDC will be joining us at our next monthly members meeting to help us knock out some of the ugly business stuff and discuss collaborative efforts between Harford Hackerspace and HacDC. Also, it now looks like members from Baltimore Node will be joining us as well.
This will be a two part meeting with the first half being all about business and taking care of important paperwork. New member can feel free to come late to skip the boring stuff.
