Treasurer Report:[]

  • 1052$ in bank + cash? + paypal?
  • This month rent is outstanding, also insurance is due
  • Check written for previous internet arraingment
  • Current member count: 15

Discuss Internet:[]

Sprint ruled out because of experience with it is poor.

Verizon Wireless too expensive.

Morty has Time Warner Cable, pays 80$ a month. 

Pursue At&t and Verizon Wireless a little further:

  • Moving Policy
  • Cancelation
  • Confirm pricing for Address
  • Get an official quote
  • Make sure to mention 501c3 status
  • Make sure to have tax exempt number

Discuss "Where are we going?":[]

  1. Big takeway from last meeting.. "More power to make", "A better place to make things"
  2. Also.. "A place where the robots know your name."

Ideas to help with above two things:

  1. Survey to DMA members. Current Members, Craigslist, Meetup, Google Group.
  2. Small tweaks to the space. More work space.. etc.
  3. Social Events
  4. Connect with other groups (DMA Sigs, other Meetup groups) Host there events here
  5. New Space (Room for seperate kitchen, meeting area, social area)
  6. Plug into the larger community.
  7. Hold big annual event (Mini-Maker Faire)

Survey seems to be biggest bang for buck currently:

  • Send to DMA, Meetup, Google Group, Craigslist, ActiveDayton, Facebook,
    • Start Wiki for questions.**
  • Between 3 and 10 questions
  • What will get people to join?
  • Price willing to pay?
  • Services wanted?
  • Capability?
  • Etc..
  • Who to target?
  • Why aern't people coming.
  • Ask some questions over meetup/group as a starter to process.
    • Rocket is project head.**
