Who should come: People who like to build, take apart, do-it-yourself, hack, create, make or otherwise control the world around them.
Meet those who celebrate our right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to our will. Share ideas, resources, collaborate, show sketches, prototypes, projects you need help with, completed, or just see what fellow makers are up to.
This Sunday February 10th at 2pm is the third Make:SF event, typically they will fall on the first Sunday of the the month, but this particular event was pushed back a week. (Please pardon any confusion.) Future events will split in to two groups, social meetings and more hands on workshops.
We had about 17 people at the second event, it was a great success! We already have more "yes" RSVP's for 2/10.
Starting with the 2/10 meeting I'd like to encourage people to sign up for a 20 minute time slot to present your work or ideas. 15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions. (See the comments section of this post on the Blog for time slots. - http://www.makesf.org/ )
I know TechShop is a bit far for some folks, but it's a pretty awesome resource. Also - Starting Feb 21st we'll be having a casual Thursday night social event in downtown San Francisco for those who can't make the trip. (Stay tuned.)
We have the full support of Make Magazine who has agreed to supply us with some tech goodies, we still have some back issues to give away, and presenters will receive a T-Shirt (while supplies last).
Again we'll have some stuff to snack on as well.
Hope to see you there! More details and a recap of previous meetings will be available on makesf.org as the date draws nearer...
PS: Here are some Maker Faire dates and times to keep in mind...
