We have a new space, colocated with the Staircase Theatre on Dundurn Street. It’s a super sweet second floor, with tons of natural light (daystar!). The best thing about the new space is that it’s approximately the most accessible location in the city – Dundurn and King. We’ve got a floor plan worked out, with a chem / cnc room, workshop space, and loungey space.
Buildout week starts today! At the open|haus tonight, we’ll be moving the 175 2x4s we ripped out of the old space over to the new one. We’ll talk about how things will work during buildout week and how you can lend a hand. We’ll keep this page updated for folks who can’t make it out tonight.
open|haus is tonight! 7PM, 152 Niagara St. See you there.
We’re always having Social Meetings every Tuesday starting at 7pm, so come on by and check us out!
Most (it not all) of our infrastructure work is now complete, and we’re gearing up with a few project ideas on the think|haus forums and now is the time to start building!
If you’d like to join, talk to us on the forums or come on by to a Social Meeting.
More stuff will be coming through the community soon, including the Electric Duck Radio Hour and regular event talks.
Since Jame’s Secure My Stuff talk was scheduled to conflict with the Hamilton LUG, it has been moved. It will now happen on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, starting next Wednesday Oct 21 at 19:00.
I, however, am even lazier, and have postponed Math Club to next month. Call it post miniSoOnCon burnout. Math club will begin on November 12th, at 7 PM and run subsequently on the 2nd Thursday of every month. The first talk will be about the different sizes of infinity:
Infinity is a weird concept. You can add one to it as many times as you like and it won’t get any bigger, so how can one infinity be larger than another? Come to the talk to find out. Don’t worry if you aren’t a math whiz: this talk should be understandable to pretty much anyone.
First official open|haus meeting happened tonight. A lot of notes were made, plans were planned, ideas shared.
Mitch purchased, installed and cleaned a refrigerator for the use of think|haus, as well as set of coffee cups (in “electric duck yellow”).
We are going to be planning a Makerfair in the next bit, as well as explore possible streams of revenue.
It was good to see some new faces. Hopefully more will come when the word gets out.
Just had to post that think|haus has been mentioned in an article in Raise the Hammer by Ryan McGreal. This necessitated the creation of the new ‘media’ section, which is linked at the top.
UPDATE: more pics from the first meeting! (Flickr link)
Lots of updates on the site the last 24 hours or so:
- contact page
- links updated
- events calendar added
- integration with twitter
and of course, we want to promote open|haus Tuesdays as much as possible.
Lastly, I was uploading some photos and came across one from the first visit I thought appropriate to share. Behold!
Think Haus met for the first time at the new location tonight. Attendance is good so far, with fifteen members in tow.
Discussions took place on different topics, ranging from celebrations on the speediness of our club’s progress (two months from first meet, to location!), as well as getting projects and fundraising ideas on the way.
Don brought cool business cards for everyone to fill in their names on, and just about everyone brought in membership dues.
Pictures were taken, and everybody is in a generally good mood about it all.
We’re still looking for more people to join and get involved! We’ll have information available later.
