Everybody introduced themselves and we all got to know each other a bit. A few new people who just learned about our group showed up.Guest Speaker: Steve from Studio Bricolage:

Official Meeting Discussion:
Our first Official meeting will be held at the Common Roots Cafe on March 11th there will be an RSVP
thread so we know how many people to expect. Also there is a "Agenda for the first Official Meeting
" thread where you can post topics you think should be addressed during our first official meeting.What type of group are we discussion:
At the end there was discussion about what type of group we are, it was mentioned that we are basically a "electronics group" and the group discussed the notion and what that meant. Some people were concerned that a title like that would limit our group from expanding into other fields of making things, but nothing concrete was determined.Final Notes:
It was a great turnout, people were excited to talk about the space, and I personally left with high hopes about our newly formed group. Pictures will be posted on the Flickr page.
