Interested in helping get huge billboards up to promote maker/hacker culture?
 +
 
 +
 
 +
I’ve been involved with talks with The Tech Museum, MAKE: Magazine, TechShop, and Hacker Dojo about getting billboards up to promote maker/hacker culture.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
The person behind making this happen is Matt Spergel, who has some good experience in hacking the billboard system to get great coverage for cool projects.  Matt managed to get a huge billboard up on I-680 to promote libraries and education for a few thousand dollars (rather than tens of thousands).  The result:<br>

 +
and he got lots of great press for it.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
Matt’s idea now is to have 3 huge billboards to promote maker/hacker culture, with the logos for Noisebridge, Hacker Dojo, The Tech Museum, MAKE, and TechShop:
 +
* 1 street level billboard in San Jose (most likely downtown?)
 +
* 1 street level billboard in San Francisco
 +
* and 1 kick ass billboard on the skyway in SF.
 +
The one on the skyway usually retails for $30K a month, but Matt’s contact/friend at CBS Outdoor can swing all of these for about $7,500.  Each one will look like this mockup:<br>

 +
 
 +
 
 +
We are $1,000 short of this goal, and I agreed to try and raise this on Noisebridge’s behalf.  The other groups have already come up with the following amounts of money for this project:
 +
* Hacker Dojo:  $1,000
 +
* MAKE:  $1,500
 +
* TechShop:  $1,500
 +
* The Tech Museum:  $2,500
 +
* Noisebridge: 
 +
 
 +
 
 +
If a bunch of people each kick in a few dollars, we can easily come up with the $1k to make this happen.  I’m starting this off by pledging $250.  Anyone else in? 
 +

The billboard campaign starts on 25-July, so we have 2 weeks to reach our goal of $1k and make these 3 billboards a reality!
 +
 
 +
 
 +
'''Objectives of the campaign'''
 +
# To grow maker/hacker culture.
 +
# To create more visibility for our organizations.
 +
# To get more people involved who will add to maker/hacker culture
 +
# To promote more collaboration amongst the orgs in on this billboard
