Four years? Already?
One of these days, I’ll put in a reminder to myself that March 31st is the anniversary of think|haus.
Two years ago, I posted “Two Years of RELOADED…” and I think I somehow missed posting on last year’s anniversary – actually, we didn’t post a single thing from 2011/10/11 to 2012/05/13 so it’s fair to say we missed a whole lot.
We had our first meeting 2009/03/31.
We moved into think|haus v1.0 on 2009/07/01.
We moved into think|haus v2.0 on 2010/11/20.
(Still affectionately referred to as “old|haus” and “new|haus” respectively.)
This is four years later and think|haus is stronger and more vibrant than ever.
Looking back over the last four years is actually pretty cool. A non-exhaustive list of highlights includes:
- getting started at all
- hosting the first SoOnCon
- acquiring and upgrading the laser
- the great Forums debate of late 2009
- providing some dignity to the last months of a member’s life
- renovation club
- began to hold classes (and kinda stopped)
- learned that laser cutters are flammable
- participated in the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge
- participated in the Toronto MiniMakerFaire
- became sponsor and host to OpenHamilton (Hamilton’s OpenData group)
- became sponsor and host to TOOOL (The GTHA Open Organization of Lockpickers)
- participated in the Function Keys Conference
…and most importantly, heading into our fifth year with renewed enthusiasm and a strong membership with ideas on how to make think|haus even more think|hausian.
Be Ambitious With Us.
