Meeting at the library to discuss makerspace stuff. Way more people than I expected, doing way more interesting things already. We had a lot of discussion about what a setup with multiple spaces might look like, what role the library might play in a maker ecosystem (classes, light tech yes, heavy fabrication no). Several students from the high school robotics club, with lots of energy and good ideas. (And a reminder that high school students have no money, so a space that serves them is going to have to have funds from elsewhere.) Possibility of using equipment already at the high school on a limited basis.
Next steps: polling the other few thousand people in town who might be interested, picking the brains of people at Generator and Lab B about the mechanics and paperwork of setting up a maker enterprise, oh, and figuring out some kind of mission statement and — gasp — maybe even a name.
