I made some flyers for distributing with the boards tonight, but am still
en route to oakland (about to hit bakersfield) - is anyone able to print
them for tonight?
can make quick edits on the road - .xcf file is here so please fork / amend
/ improve at will:
Help open a professional kitchen at the Omni Commons in Oakland!

Hey y'all, I asked Brewster and Wendy about Disaster Radio comps for the
summit, got this back. If you're down to work cleanup on Thursday night,
holler back! (I have a ticket already, proceeds of backroom EFF deal.)
We'd love for Disaster Radio folks to attend!
We've extended comp tickets to a large group of Sudomesh folks including
Jenny Ryan in exchange for volunteer hours.
Have you talked to Jenny? Maybe many people in disaster radio are
But here's the problem: every person who comes costs IA $585. That's
our break even per person. So we need enough people to pay to offset all
the free registrations, and right now, if I sell every single remaining
ticket. we will just break even.
There is one way we could work out a deal-- we need clean up help on
Thursday night from 9PM to 2 AM. That's right. It's a gruesome shift,
but we will all be there ourselves striking the Mint.
If your folks are willing to volunteer and really show up for that
shift, we can offer pure comp tix.
(In my experience, getting people to actually show up for that shift
takes a lot of arm-twisting, so you, Leez, would have to guarantee us
that you would make sure they actually came and volunteered Thursday night.)
We still have more soldering to do on the disaster radio nodes for the dweb
This time most of the soldering will be larger through-hole components so
it should be easier for less experienced solderers.
Join us at 7:30 pm tonight at sudo room!
There will be pizza and beer!
We're having a hacknight this coming Tuesday to solder up ~50 dev boards to
be given away to interested developers at the decentralized web summit!
We have all but a few boards pre-populated with everything except the LoRa
radio modules, the SMA edge connector and pin headers.
If any of you have time to help out and any sort of experience with
soldering then we could really use your help! Even if you don't we'll need
help flashing and testing them.
There will be food and drinks :)
We just got an email that disaster.radio is a finalist in the Mozilla
That means we'll have to do a 5 minute live demo in Mountain View on August
15th. This will be followed by 2-3 minutes of questions from the judges.
Audience size will be ~20 judges + ~80 others.
We don't know how many teams are finalists.
Great! Yes let's do 7 pm :)
