[Space] No meeting on May 9th

I've definitely been confused about the meetings (hence you haven't seen me
since the beta "launch"). 2 meetings a week *seems* to not be a great idea
and it'll just create more duplicate effort to communicate to everyone. Can
we go back to one meeting a week and then the main builders for upcoming
launches can coordinate amongst themselves?
FYI on being next to Noisebridge's booth - on the main Noisebridge mailing
list recently, they said Spacebridge was going to be left on its own to find
its own booth since we hadn't coordinated with the main Noisebridge booth.
Someone should confirm/deny this.
I've never been to Maker Faire before (gasp!), so I really hope I can make
it out this year!

By all means, if people want to get together Sunday, please do. But last I
heard Nils, Blake, Brian and I will not be able to make it.
As for Makers Faire, we have received confirmation that we have a booth, and
have sent in our Participation Agreement, but have not received our email
finalizing the details of our participation. But all other emails that I
have sent regarding ether the lofting a balloon (which was outlined in our
application), or the placement of our booth, have either not been responded
to, or have been forwarded to the person who has not been responding to me
-_- I'll send one more email today, but if anybody has contacts who might be
a bit more attentive and wants to give it a shot, please do. Ultimately
what we want is the ability to loft a balloon (and the safety details
involved) and if possible have our booth placed adjacent to Noisebridge's
booth (so we can use some of their space to widen our tether (and I
understand the are kind of cool folks too)) I have so far been talking to
As for what we are doing for Makers Faire. So far the plan is surprisingly
similar to what we did for Yuri's night. Changes to that plan will rely on
balloon details. I am also planning on making a stand for the payload bus'
to help display them.
