Andreas -- Andreas ordered a new hotend and parts for the Flashforge at Noisebridge!!!

Lee -- Lee announces the computer music workstation is Suprisingly Functional, considering that Lee built it out of trash. He would like to provide workshops in Sunvox, PD aka puredata, and SuperCollider!! Especially focused around building SW synths. Scheduling TBD

Flaschen Taschen -- Miloh says the Flaschen Taschen reached a big milestone -- The Kleine F~T is finished and the big F~T is 7 tall. Come and check it out, donate to the fundraising (we still need $250 to reimburse Scotty in China and another $250-$400 to cover costs that Jarrod and Henner put in for the project). We also need programmers to work on a web client for the Flaschen Taschen. Some folks already are working on new clients for games or to provide a web accessible frontend. Kennrick already wrote a game of life program.
