Mini'app'les combined meeting Thu, September 29, 7pm – 9pm Where Hack Factory Description Mini'app'les is a Mac/iOS Users Group which hosts several different Special Interest Groups (SIGs) each month. All meetings are open to the public and there is no charge. (Membership in Mini'app'les is $20/yr, but there is no requirement to join.). Most meetings take place at Public Libraries or are hosted by cooperative businesses. [www.miniapples.org]
The combined meeting is a new idea and an experiment in building community—an attempt to gather as a larger group and discuss issues of interest to the group as a whole. To be “impartial” we are holding the meeting on a “neutral” night and are looking for a central location that isn't associated with one of the SIGs.

Open Locksport Night!!! Tue, October 4, 7pm – 9pm Where Hack Factory (map) Description It's taken a bit of time, but we're starting a monthly locksport open house.
What is locksport you ask? Locksport is the amateur study of how locks and locking systems work, and how to defeat them. It's not how to break into a soda machine, but the study of the little mechanical puzzles that we rely on for so many things in daily life. You've probably seen lock picking in movies and on TV, and may have seen bump keys on the news, but this is your chance to find out more about how all of that works, or if you already know, to maybe show off your collection of antique lever locks, or just hang out and chat with other lock enthusiasts.
The first Tuesday of each month we'll have a brief presentation, and then mill about and pick, snap, rake, bump, impression, disassemble, and generally embarrass some little chunks of brass. We'll kick things off on April 5th at 7PM. Introduction to Bow Making When Sat, October 8, 1pm – 7pm Where the Hack Factory , 3119 26th St. East, MPLS, MN (map) Description Introduction to Bow Making. Learn to use hand tools to make a bow, and take the tools and the bow home with you. Details: http://tcmaker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1485&p=11296#p11296

Omaha Maker Group http://omahamakergroup.org/2011/09/01/happy-birthday-omaha-maker-group/ 8/30/11 Marked the 1 year anv of the omaha Maker Group
“It occurs to me that the most valuable thing that the Omaha Maker Group has given us in the last year isn’t the physical workspace down at the Makery, nor any of the growing collection equipment there, but rather all of the people we’ve met. We have really great bunch of Makers, techies, artists and doers of all kinds; People willing to help when you get stuck on a project or to mock you into starting the project in the first place. For my part, I’ve made more than a few friends along the way. Here’s to many more years of Making in Omaha.” Cowtown Computer Congress
