A different cinci hackerspace group, that already has a site:

should we try to met these guys, and perhaps join forcesif we all get
along well?

quote from the steampunk page:

I think somebody should go to at least see what their site is like. Maybe we can expand on it or what not. I would also be curious on how they solved the membership costs and utility expenses. There was an art warehouse in City Beat this week too but I think that is yet another group…

this pisses me off. :slight_smile: i scoured the web for a burner group in cincinnati and somehow missed these guys.

I went, met them. and i am pleased.

They are relaxed, cool, fun burning man types, and i got along with
them very well. They're very friendly.

They will be working most of the day on sunday, 5/17 starting at noon.
i'll be there helping out as well, methinks.
got inspired when i met them. they're doing much of what we have been
talking about.

they are having a rave/party next satuday as a fund raiser, 10$
suggested donation
and will be onsite most weekend days after noon working.

anyone want to take a field trip tomorrow or next saturday, or the
week after, and form opinions?

oh, and the cinci burning man site is here:

How is their place? I think they call it the KOI Pound. I totally think we should work with them. Especially since they have rave fundraisers :wink: I totally support that.

Can we work with them to use some space for a lounge and data center? Maybe we can buy/lease some space from them or do we have to get another place for that?

Hopefully more ppl can make it tomorrow to KOI!!

Great find Kazen!

**i like it. old industrial area, very mad-max feeling. i'll try to
take pictures tomorrow.
it was *filled* with junk, but they've been working for 2 months, and
the place is starting to take shape.

I totally think we

should work with them. Especially since they have rave fundraisers :wink: I
totally support that.

***otter be fun. they may be doing something with lasers, i think i
heard mention of a giant pvc dome being put over the lot for the
party.
if they have a dome, and no lasers, perhaps we might help. :slight_smile:

***I think it's a real possibility. much to discuss with them,
methinks.
the landlord is actually turning a chunk of the place into rather nice
apartments. one of them could be a place for us to rent and use as
clean space.
we should inspect it as a group, and brainstorm. it may be what we
need, it may not.

Hopefully more ppl can make it tomorrow to KOI!!

***I'll be there around noon. :slight_smile: be warned, people that show up might
get drafted to help move stuff.

Great find Kazen!

***thanks, i think it was sheer luck, they kinda found us. :slight_smile:
