Agenda

Shopping 4 Electronics

  • Kris: Selection of a "low-cost general purpose microcontroller kit" (Arduino based???) [who leads this? can you make a project page?]
     --> the kit should contain the minimal components needed for future (Whitespace) projects
     --> the kit should let you start easily with your next project
     --> 3 steps procedure:
               1) Whitespace buys all the components for a couple of kits at once
               2) You can buy a low-cost kit from Whitespace
               3) Have fun building your next project
  • we want to make a page/app/something where people that are planning to buy electronics
  • once enough is on there to drop shipping charges, we order, and gain $$$

Money management

  • Proposal:
* assign someone to be responsible for 3 months for the financials
* that person gets clean books
* that person returns clean books
  • Advantages:
* we build shared knowledge about doing the books

* no single point of failure
  • Flow:
* People can volunteer

  • We need to assign the users that are member to a members-group.

  • Sandb & _Ptr are driving, not this but next weekend.
  • Bringing back 80 cases
  • Will try for 20 cases for 0x20.

Video meetings

  • Cool idea (from Koen): have a video cam that is setup to make a movie of every presentation we do, and put the setup so that it is very asy to capture, compress, upload to youtube and link to it on the site.

Dorkbot minus Dorkbot

Andre to fill in.
