For the most part, my year has consisted of trying to network HacDC with other groups and represent HacDC at events. To that end, I:

  • offered 3D printing services, along with Julia, at the two-day Smithsonian Institute's Earth Optimism Summit "Make for the Planet" hack-a-thon
  • represented HacDC for the Community Makerspace Day event at Mary McLeod Bethune Day Academy PCS
  • supported Ken's Neighborhood Opportunity Centers (NOCs) proposals by:
    • participating in two meetings with DC government officials and Nation of Makers executive director
    • arranged a meeting between HacDC and the New America Foundation's Open Source Institute
    • established a wiki page for collecting, coalating and coordinating potential NOC resources

Project Awesome Reports

Project SPACEBLIMP

We postponed our March 3-4 launch due to winds out in Strasburg, despite everything being ready to go otherwise. Sad! We're currently deciding on a new launch date but the weekends of March 24 and March 31 are likely. We've also entered the Global Space Balloon Challenge under the team name Hackers SLS (Space Lunch System) and plan to launch another Spaceblimp for that competition in later April (not to far away).

Audit Committee Report

Nobody bothered to form a committee so there's no report. All financial statements including receipts for all purchases are at the space, in the BOD locker, treasurer's folder. The Dwolla statements include member names, the rest don't. -Enrique
