I'd love to hear from spaces interested in forming a team and throwing
their hat in the ring.

Hi, i'm throwing this out there for chez hack. I can do ios mobile location
based stuff, a very simple app that's hooked up to a web dashboard that
would be great for mapping out hacker spaces or neighborhoods through
It also has image recognition that's better than QR codes, that would
recognize a photograph.
it's using a commercial SDK though (Qualcomm's Gimbal) so that's the
caveat... but I think if anyone's down for interesting ideas with that, it
would be a fun project!
April 17th* - thanks Rusty
Please review the agenda, add additional items, links, etc.

Hol and Naomi,
I agree with and support your locker idea completely. Self-funding
investments until profitability is a model we need to start.
I propose the price be $100 / m^3 to start.

tall kind, probably not ideal:
smaller cube size:
i think it would be a good idea to throw in a few lockers and have people
sign up for recurring payments in order to reserve them. if seems like a
good idea, i'd be willing to buy them if i can be reimbursed AFTER the
locker program breaks even.
