Hey All,

  We're having a Noisefund BetaRaiser this March, the 30th.  Send me back a
confirmation if you're still able/interested in partaking; we love you all
and your enthusiasm.

Musically, the potential idea is:

Dubious Ranger, Dwayne's Band (not sure of their name), Carl & Beatrice,
Noisejam Orchestra.  This'll be very cool as it puts the emphasis on
homemade instruments.  If all the bands are cool with it, I believe it
would be excellent to allow Noisejam people to jam along (they're people
who've built their own kooky instruments at Noisebridge).

Outside of music, the more concrete ideas are:

Tony will man a table for ZiP zine.  Mitch Altman will demo cool circuit
hacking.  Someone will step-up to man a table for a silent art auction.
 Persons unknown will help with a pleasant setup and teardown, which will
cause minimal chaos.  Someone will step up to help provide food for the
event which can be enjoyed by all.  It seems byob is the concept of the
day, which will hopefully avoid the need for a liquor license (correct me
on this).  Like everything else, the event will be done by optional

Big questions we currently face:

How long should this be?  Perhaps 6 or 7pm - 11pm, with music from 8:30pm -
Could someone teach the vinyl cutter and laser cutter, or perhaps the maker
bots?  It would be awesome to let people sign up as small groups to check
these things out in 15 or 20min rotations.  Share your thoughts!

This is what is rolling around my head at the moment.  Let's hack away on
