Yeah! Last night was awesome!
Hi everyone, Gwen here- I'm new to the drkrm list but not to noisebridge.


Thanks Rubin for hosting the B&W development tutorial last night, it was 
great to get back in the darkroom. I am too busy to meet every week, but 
every other week would be awesome. Wednesday is better for me because on 
Friday I am most often DEAD tired. Sunday night could be OK for me if 
you are looking for a night where there isn't much going on in 
noisebridge, but I don't know what other peoples schedules are like.


As for next time it would be cool to follow the natural progression to 
developing B&W prints so everyone is familiar with how to mix what and 
what should be re-used, etc. In the future I would reeeeealy like to 
learn color processing but that is probably too intense for the second 
meetup.
