Drew went to the World Maker Faire in NYC. It was very cool, but not as cool as Detroit. Lenore went to Ohio Linux Fest. Shaw reported that we had lightning talks and they went well. Jeff said they were attended by members of the library and they are looking forward our collaborative one in January.
Jeff: Sunday is the Pepakura workshop. Let him know if you have a file or need one. Mark: An 8 week Python course starts on October 15th and Mark will make himself available on Friday nights to help with it. Geoff: Signed up for the welding class at Durham Tech, but it was cancelled. Welding for Commercial Artists is still available. Wednesday nights, starting at 5:45. No new people! Jeff is making new and better magnet signs.
Blender workshop: It went okay, but there were some technical difficulties. Projector difficulties. Will make it more interactive next time. Not this weekend, but possibly the following weekend. Since Geoff will not be available for the next Digital Fabrication Night someone else will need to host and Jeff thinks he can be there.
