Asks: should the Secretary include members' full names in minutes?

A quick vote of members resolves the issue: use members' first names and last initial; use first names or aliases for guests.

On June 15, Make Faire is at the NC State Fairgrounds. We have been given a 10x20' space, one of the large spaces, so we need to bring all the cool stuff people have been working on. I'm the point person talking to the Make Faire folks, so send an e-mail to the list if you're planning to be there or bring something. I need to compile a list of people who are bringing things for the organizers so they can get in without buying a ticket. We'll also need a schedule for who will be at the booth during the day. Hoping for 8 people to cover the booth.

Will check with Daniel to see if his game is ready to go.

We can pre-load big items on Friday. Load-in on Saturday starts at 8 AM, and the fair is open from 10 AM to 6 PM.

Anna, a student at Elon, came to Splatspace for help with a school project--a free-standing "photo booth" device that sends photos to Facebook and Twitter. Based on Rasperry Pi. This was displayed at Elon's media show a few weeks ago. We might be able to display it at Maker Faire.

I have extra Sugru if anyone needs any.
