Secretary's Report

There is no spoon.

Director-at-Large Reports

Will: Been working with Jamie to clean up the HacDC drupal site: it was found by the spambots. Requiring new accounts has shut down the new spam, but there is still the issue of existing spammy comments which need to be removed.

Katie: Unicorn (My Little Pony + soldering iron) build this weekend, as well as cupcake packaging (hackerspace challenge). Will all be scheduled tomorrow, check the mailing list for details.

Member Reports

Todd: FIRST robotics. Five members went to the kickoff. Game is throwing inner tubes onto pegs on a wall while another bot has to climb a pole. We have relations with Dunbar HS (near convention center) and Cardozo HS (Columbia Heights) which is local. People who want to mentor need to get fingerprinted and TB-tested, forms by the computer. There may be an option for drop-by guest speaker status.

We also sent out our 501c3 application, after it was returned with questions.

Chris: Our crashspace will be listed on the Schmoocon website once the booked-up hotel fills.

Tommy: Spent last few months building Q-switch trigger for his big scary laser. It's all GPL, ask for details if you're interested. Small YAG laser for sale, with frequency doubler.

Martin: Whatever became of Friends of HacDC? Thinks there's a bunch of people who'd donate a small amount. We could advertise this, donate small bits of schwag.

Elliot: 3D printing extravaganza. We had four bots in the space, bunch of people working on them. I'll run a 3D printing Noob-to-Pro weekend workshop in a few weeks.

Martin: We should have an open-hack night.

Will: Sent out a list of programming, past and future. Wants to collect up a list of skills. Need more instructions on how to run an event at HacDC.
