North Staffs & Cheshire Geeks can no longer complain about the lack of meeting opportunities, as GeekUp moves south.
Come along to The Lodge, Alsager http://ur1.ca/xmio
7pm, Weds 5th May, 2010
We have a function room booked, with WiFi & projector.
Theme of the first meeting: Setting up a local hackspace.
A hackspace is a building (or room) where people (artists, techies, & random passers-by) can play creatively with technology: just let your imagination take you where it will. Everything from arduino-powered robots  to circuit board jewellery.
Easy to get to by train from Crewe & Stoke.
Hope to see some of you there :-)
For those not familiar with GeekUp, there's some info below:
"What is GeekUp?
"GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other tech-minded folk from the UK. It's a grassroots knowledge sharing and networking social for folks involved or interested in the web and technology industry. Monthly events take place in Chester, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Sheffield.
"Who can attend GeekUp?
"While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody
involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy our own beer."
& for those not too sure what a hackerspace is,
Just turn up on the night, we'll be there until at least 10pm - or RSVP here.
