Let's make this a permanent part of the TODO Action Items section of the meeting agenda.
- Identify volunteers to plan moving electronics donations from Fred Ebeling and Pete Soper from Pete's garage to SplatSpace. Waiting to move electronics donations from Fred & Pete until we've finished creating shelves, more storage space, and cleaning up space.
- Members discussed the need for a Tool Reservation system. Tool reservation system is going to be a calendar, pending web site updates. Blake cites the calendar resources in Google Admin
- Blake has installed the new laptops in place. If we can get cheap Kensington locks, we should get them.
- Scott has made process wiring up zoned amplifiers to wire up multiple speakers in each room for music and paging system. This is on pause as Scott focuses on shelving and cleanup efforts.
- The Splatspace Pizza Cleanup party was successful. The boneyard has been overhauled. A future cleanup party is planned for Feb 28.
- Justin will provide update about the SplatSpace floor plan he created for members to use for planning purposes and reference.
- Justin volunteered his old Intel i3 system for use in the space for the Glowforge, possibly in the member signin/guest book/reservation system/information kiosk.
- Discuss centralized, online file storage for SplatSpace documents and files.
- Google Drive file storage system to implement:
- Ryan shared idea to separare SplatSpace files by access rights: Treasurer Google Drive Folder - contains all files only for officers. President Google Drive Folder - contains all files for general public. Vice President/Secretary - contains all fils for SplatSpace general members.
- Web team update: Blake, Andrew, Ryan, Justin, and others are still working on the new SplatSpace website. Blake shared about the web site updates.
- Showed the new draft he's been working on. - Blake will invite a small group to soon to do the last push (move the Wiki to Wordpress) and add Stripe portal, then publish the site and update the domain.
