Security Camera Project Update
- POC: Mike
- Over the past week and a half, I've gotten the security camera system up and running.
- It worked as expected for the ~48 hours I had it running Friday-Sunday
- One (hopefully minor) hiccup with it should be resolved tomorrow.
- Seven cameras are up in the space: Front/Garage Doors, Commons Area, Welding Zone, Laser Cutter: Bumblebee, Wood Shop, Tool Crib, and Electronics Lab.
- See Security_Cameras#Current_Locations for what the cameras currently see.
- An outdoor camera was previously approved by the membership but is currently a low priority.
Membership Strike Force
Next meeting is this Sunday Feb 21st, 5-8 PM. This meeting will be a combination of membership and scholarship discussion. Open to everyone, especially new members and people who have received scholarships. Anyone can also join in the electronic discussions, which have been happening on Slack, in the channels #guest-policy and #member-involvement
CCTV Policy Update
- POC: Jamie Burdeski
Jamie: As some of you may know, the new camera system is very nearly completely up and running, and so I've been thinking about the CCTV policy, and looking over the CCTV section in the standing rules to see how it works and if it could work better.
Discussion: Is the board allowed to also add or remove camera locations.
I would like to make 2 proposals: A) Don't change any content of the CCTV policy. but change the wording and organization of the section so it's easier to read, and remove some of the initial execution aspects of the CCTV system that really don't need to be in the standing rules from here until eternity.
References for Proposal A
B) In addition to the changes in Proposal A, replace the 4-person viewing team with the Board of Directors. My reasoning for this is:
- Keeping track of the 4-person team is inconvenient and historically has not worked well. Case in point: we don't actually have any reviewers right now that are confirmed
- Adding another type of position in addition to the board, officers, and zone coordinators is just adding unnecessary complexity to the organizational structure of i3. It makes more sense to tie the duties of reviewing camera footage into existing leadership positions.
- The Board should inherently be the body that the membership trusts the most, since the Board is elected by the membership, so there should be no need to complicate the process (referring to the OLD policy of 2 membership-appointed reviews + 2-board appointed reviewers)
- The decision of whether or not to review camera footage is in line with other duties of the Board - in general, resolving member disputes, and ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone in the space.
References for Proposal B
Whereas the wording and organization of the CCTV section could be easier to read, and the section contains initial execution aspects of the CCTV system that shouldn't be in the standing rules,
We propose to change the CCTV Section in the Standing Rules to the Following:
- The Point of Contact for the CCTV System will be the Zone Coordinator of the Infrastructure Zone, who will handle
- Requests to view real-time camera streaming
- Requests to view historical CCTV footage
- Complaints/suggestions about the CCTV system at i3
- Requests to re-position cameras
- Other issues of technical implementation
- Storage of footage
- The past 60 days of footage will be stored
- Specific footage may be saved for an indefinite period of time as needed for investigation purposes.
- Camera location and positioning
- The current approved list of camera locations is available on the wiki
- A camera location can be added or removed from the current list by a majority vote of the General Membership.
- Zone Coordinators can position the viewing angle of cameras in their zone.
- Real-time camera access
- Any member may, with instruction by the Infrastructure Zone Coordinator, gain a real time, on demand image of the view of any camera in the CCTV system.
- Viewing will be done at the CCTV master workstation, or other workstations as designated by the Infrastructure Zone Coordinator.
- Request to view historical footage
- A member (or members) may request to view historical video by contacting the Infrastructure Zone Coordinator
- Footage may be viewed when approved by and accompanied by two members from the 4 member Viewing Team
- An approved request will be posted to the mailing list by the Infrastructure Zone Coordinator, including the requesting member(s) and specifics of the footage requested.
- Any viewed historical video will be specially saved for at least 180 days. Information from the viewing will be distributed to appropriate members as deemed necessary by the requesting member(s) only.
- Viewing team
- The viewing team will consist of 4 members
- The members of the viewing team will be listed on the wiki
- Any vacancies will be filled by nominees of the Infrastructure Warden and confirmed by a majority vote of the General Membership.
- Any viewing team member may resign at any time.
- Any viewing team member going on Hiatus or exiting i3 Detroit will be removed from the Viewing Team.
- There is no special physical security measures of the CCTV system required by this policy.
- No offsite access will be allowed to the CCTV system, nor will any multiday camera be installed at the i3 site without being part of and covered by the rules of this CCTV policy.
Elect 4 CCTV Viewers
- Terry W : Noted that this is no longer required with the new camera policy just approved.
- Please add stuff to the blog.
- Thursday board game nights will continue.
- Pot lock is this weekend on Saturday. Great opportunity for new members to learn the space, meet other members and pitch in.
Recently approved i3 Training Stimulus Proposal
- James O'Dell
Last week the board passed a proposal to promote more training at i3.
Starting March 1st, any member that teaches a public class will have a half a month's dues refunded. This proposal will be a three month trial during March, April, May. The VP of Classes/Activities will make a proposal status report to the board meetings monthly.
- A member will receive half a month’s dues refunded for each class or workshop taught.
- The class must be open to the public.
- Class can be free or fee based.
- Maximum of two refunds per month for each member.
- All classes will be coordinated through VP of Classes/Activities (email@example.com).
- Limit of 10 refunds per month.
- Encourage new and different i3 members to host classes.
- Increase public education awareness of i3.
- Encourage new members by introducing them to i3.
- Show new members more of what benefits i3 offers.
- Recent class.
- Order recently placed for bicycle specific tools. Should be in next week. Look forward to bike construction and deconstruction.
- Drywall is UP. Electrical works. Lights are IN. Tables are DELIVERED. We are in the process of mud/sand drywall. Next comes paint. Glen is doing the mud/sand and he is laid up with a cold for a few days. Work to continue soon. If you want to use the classroom in the interim, please reserve on the SLACK channel. Anybody who wants to help, please sweep,mop classroom floor. Thanks. TerryW
- Commons area is still here and exists.
- All equipment is working.
- Instead of scheduling orientation sessions, I will be available before and after member meetings in case people have questions. Also, I can be reached on Slack, email and phone (see my user page).
- I will offer a class in Flask (a Python web framework) in March (date and time TBD).
- Thank you whoever's been taking care of the floor!
- No thank you to all the junk strewn about the benches. Seriously.
- The ZC is not aware of any equipment downtime, if something is broken, please email!
- Will plan to clean it out during pot lock.
- Pot lock is coming soon, there's lots of little tasks to do.
- Cameras had a hiccup, Mike is working on it
- Two orientations were well attended. Software and design & build ideas were presented and questions discussed. A demo of the injection molding machine was given. Half the people had a general interest and the other half had projects in mind. Some people expressed interest in joining i3.
- The past month has involved the orientations and two mold try outs on the small machine.
- Both the small and large machine are worth keeping for now.
- The company, Suburban Tool, we bought the chiller from makes online videos of machining for YouTube and would like to make a video of i3 for their "field trip" segment. They manufacture and sell precision ground gaging tooling. I passed on the info to Charlie and he is pursuing it with them.
- Will plan to hold the injection molding workshops on a monthly basis.
Thad Johnson Injection Molding Zone Coordinator
- Plan to install rolling mill at pot lock
- Now have a borrowed motor dedicated to jewelry polishing. Trying to find a place to put it. It may move to the metal shop.
- Planning on total kiln zone reorganization and clean out at Saturday's pot lock. Will need at least a few people to get it done. All help appreciated.
- Working on date to pick up new glass kiln from the factory. Let Leora know if you are interested in the one day road trip (still working on getting a factory tour).
- Bumblebee has a new lens. It's the same lens that's in Wolverine. No major difference in cutting performance is expected.
- Use the neon color focus gauges that say Wolverine.
- Sander training went well.
- Small hole in sander belt. Will need replacement.
- Pursuing new tools. In discussions about a band saw.
- Waiting until Terry has time to work on the tool crib.

- Come at 6:45 for table saw authorization.
Space Project Updates
- Working on acquiring an inertial measuring unit.
- Jeremy Boyd (PPPRS organizer and friend to i3) as made a request to have the #3 Jeep (as the oldest competiting vehicle) appear at more makerfaires across the country as possible. I think this is a good idea and am inclined to let it happen. Would like membership thoughts on this as well.
With the 2016 PPPRS season in shape to begin this May in San Mateo, I've had a bit of a thought. The Jeep, I believe, is turning six this year. That makes it the oldest competing power wheel, which is really quite special. I would like, with your permission, to see it race at as many Maker Faires as possible this year. And with San Mateo scheduled for the 20-22 of May, I need to start thinking about logistics. Would you be alright with my taking the jeep along with all the other power wheels things out to San Mateo and racing it there? I would be more than happy to perform any brake/throttle/chassis repairs and maintenance necessary to make that happen. I just want to see the thing race in good trim at more events.
