It was such a treat to meet up with some old San Francisco friends today Mitch and Luigi.
We were able to talk a bit about the concept of a Hatchery (the name may be over used, but it’s so apt). And how it may help fund peoples ideas, I’m thinking some services that we can offer and some profit sharing models to encourage collaboration, and to stimulate work. I’m still mulling all these thoughts over and if you’d like to discuss what a hatchery can be, a hackerspace -geekery and +focus on entrepreneurship as a goal. But if you want to talk about this, projects in general, and DIY/Maker/Hacker culture you should come to the Ann Arbor Chocolate Cafe in Ann Arbor this friday!
Ann Arbor Introductions!
Where: 330 S Main St Ann Arbor, MI
When: 7:22 PM
Why: Talk, get excited, have chocolate
Bring: An extra dollar bill
I’ve been thinking about the relationship between wiki’s and mind maps. It would be neat if we could go from wiki to mind map to try to see a birds eye view of our thoughts and how they progress and grow. So I’m looking for good software to try to write a project oriented mind map of ideas, materials, webpages and people… So far I found Tiddly Wiki. Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I use something else?
Coming back from PS1 in Chicago on the long drive back to Cambridge I’ve been doing some serious thinking. I believe that Michigan needs a hackerspace with a unique perspective, a job generating outlook. I’ll be back in Michigan – Ann Arbor – to start discussions on planning and organizing a new hackerspace next friday July 31st. Anyone who believes should be there.
