Discussion Items[edit]

  • Marc talked about a small milling machine (MTM A-Z) he saw at MIT Medialab's FabLab. It's a machine that you build yourself like a makerbot, and the materials cost about 500.
  • Can we update the blog easier? I'd like to be able to easily blog things for Noisebridge, but I don't have my own wordpress blog and I'm not interested in having one for any reason other than NB. --Hurtstotouchfire 03:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
