I mentioned this at the meeting this week, but wanted to post to the list too.
The time has come for me to reduce my commitment to being at the Hive
every Monday night. I'll still be able to come sometimes, but coming
two nights a week every single week is too much right now.
Since the beginning of MakerBot Mondays, I've tried to always either
be at the space on Mondays or have someone else there to let newcomers
in if they show up. I've always told people that Mondays are the best
time to come to get introduced to our Fab Lab tools instead of
Tuesdays when there is a lot going on. Since I won't always be there
I don't want to make the promise to the general public that Mondays is
a good time to show up unexpected. Unless someone else wants to take
If anyone wants to take over Monday nights, or maybe even split it
with me, then we can keep Monday nights as the best "alternate" night
for new people to come. If not, I think I'll take it off the Google
calendar and re-word some of the pages on the wiki so that they don't
give the idea that someone will always be there.
I'll still come as often as I can on Tuesdays and to other events too.
I'm still willing to teach people the MakerBot and the Laser Cutter
when I am available.
