Vice President's Report
Migrated website from Drupal to Wordpress (Thanks Alberto!). Please contact admin team for access to post new content! (remember to use categories and multimedia is a plus) Also looking for project write-ups to add to Projects page. Feedback is always welcome.
DC Library Lab looking for collaboration
- scanning automation
- Wikimedia accessibility hacking
- Open Street Map
- leading classes
- Found free office chairs [pic] for classroom (mostly confirmed). Looking for new tables and shelves to better organize classroom and kitchen space.
- free "big sheets of paper" (aka posters with good quality blank backs). just leave 2-3 for haxwithaxe.
- DIY godd (US passport like) quality Hackerspace Passports (DIYHackerSpacePassport). I have very nice paper and vinyl cover material, and probably way more than I will use.
Should we look into getting a Clear modem to improve Internet access inside the space? $50/month plus $20 for refurb modem. Up to 6Mb/1Mb but concerns about caps and throttling.
Should we allocate money to purchase a camcorder, mic, and accessories for recording classes and events? I (Tim) think we should have everything on hand and make it as easy as possible to record stuff (with everyone's permission of course) and post it to YouTube (or whatever). Entry-level HD Camcorder is $150-200, mic is $50, tripod is $30, memory card is $20, so total is $250-300. We would keep it locked up and give presenters the combo so it wouldn't be easily stolen.
