Agenda[edit]

Shopping 4 Electronics[edit]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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
    • we have a checkpoint every 3 months on our book keeping
    • no one has to do all the work
    • no single point of failure
  • Flow:
    • People can volunteer
    • If no one volunteers, someone is voted; any one is a candidate in that case.
    • People can only be elected once a year, unless they volunteer.

Members Private[edit]

  • We make one page on the wiki users that contains the list of members; there email; their real name and their adress; (if they so wish to share it).
  • We need to assign the users that are member to a members-group.

Club Mate[edit]

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

Video meetings[edit]

  • 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[edit]

We want to host regular evenings similar to Dorkbot, where people show projects they are involved with (open source and similar) and give them a platform to present. This will give people a platform, make 0x20 more known and will just be a lot of fun. We do not want to pull people away from dorkbot, we want to be the technical side of things. fs111 will govern the idea, but everybody is invited to find people willing to present.

Python workshop[edit]

Flappers[edit]

  • truckload seems a bit much to store
  • we'll check with Tobias what that means "truckload"
  • we only want to store a reasonable amount of flappers, enough for the flappers project to succeed
  • we'll debate further (next week?) once we know about how many flappers we're talking

Misc[edit]

  • Status on Ubuntu Release party, within 2 weeks, any preps required? (try to ask Mike)
