At last week’s meeting, we moved to amend the bylaws so that meetings are on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. The Board met afterward and adopted the amendment, and it’s done!
Tonight, therefore, we will do no official business. All are welcome, members and guests alike, to hang out and do whatever. Get here!
Everyone’s favorite magazine is coming to town to discuss the possibility of having a Maker Faire Detroit in Michigan. One cannot fathom the awesomeness that would come from hosting this event.
In between his super secret meetings around the state, none other than Dale Dougherty, founder of Make Magazine, will visit i3 Detroit on November 7th, 2009 at 11 am - 1 pm. He is the Minister of Make…the Gentleman of Geekdom…the Duke of D.I.Y. and the exploits of i3 Detroit have made it cross country to his palace of periodicals.
Everyone is welcome to join us in the i3 Detroit workspace to discuss the possibility of a Maker Faire Detroit. What you would like to see at the event? What talents can you share? These are some of the questions that will be asked. We want feedback and insight from everyone. This is Detroit’s event.
For the regulars, you will have a chance to meet one of the major players (if not the major player) in the Make Movement. For the newbies, you get the added bonus of touring the i3 Detroit workspace, checking out member projects and getting information on becoming a member yourself.
For any questions, contact Nick – firstname.lastname@example.org – 248.709.3822
Sunday was Pumpkin Carving and Halloween Costume Build Day at i3 Detroit. It also happened to be Spooktacular in Royal Oak where all the families can go trick or treating at the businesses in downtown Royal Oak. We thought it would be fun to take the Cup Cake car for a drive downtown to hand out candy. The response to the Cup Cake car was great as usual and a lot of fun handing out candies and photos with the kids.
After some safety-related upgrades to Nick’s cupcake car, some new folks set aside their fears of grave bodily harm long enough to take it for a spin. Fourth in the seat was Russ, i3Detroit’s founder, who was letting some traffic pass when a Royal Oak Police patrol car cruised up…
Filmed at roughly midnight, the video’s a little dark, but the lights in the sprinkles really make the cupcake stand out. The first car (the one we’re all hollering “CAR! CAR!” about) blows right past, and then it gets interesting!
Been looking for an excuse to drop by the space? Bring a friend, meet some members, and hang out for as much of the evening as you’d like!
phone: (248) 906-8473
For tours, just drop in before a meeting (Tuesdays 5-7pm) or any Friday evening (5-9pm).
