Hotel Info

Schedule

  • A type of panel discussion where members of various hackerspaces get up before the room and present a problem with their space and let the room try and solve it. The idea being that surely there's another space that's already dealt with said problem and can offer advice.

Discussion

  • Perhaps try and get a discounted rate or free access to the Space & Rocket Center.
  • Possible schwag being something hackable.
    • Definitely want the schwag to be useful.
    • strages and nykodemus are working on badges
  • Do we all like the name "metaspace"? Or "the metaspace con"?

Ideas for Events

  • Makeshop overnight "camp-in" at 403 Brown Street
    • This is something I have been wanting to do for a while. We would have to come up with a project that would be amazing. Then plan it out so we know how much time and money it would take. Might be something to discuss with other groups and see what they think. --Jimshoe 09:57, 3 August 2009 (CDT)
