President's Report

Vice President's Report

I've been making a bunch of new computers for the space. New lasercutter driver, new Classroom TV, new basement TV.

Also got access to the phone system recently. I've setup a voip phone in the basement, which can be rung from the main menu.

I've created a roadmap for work to be done on the lasercutter.

I got somebody to come pick up some of our trash, with the potential to come pick up more trash in the future.

I'm trying to create a wiki for reverse engineering in general. I think I've purchased a domain,, and will provision a server for it eventually.

Director-at-Large Reports


  • Set up a meeting with Open Technology Institute, with Ken, Julia, myself and Karen in attendance. More follow-up needed but positive response from OTI and offers to help.
  • Met with a PSA-702 in SE to establish relationships with potentially interested parties. Most notably, the Ward 8 liaison from the Mayor's Office of Community Relations and Services, who spoke about a technical training center for job training.
