Hey folks,

This (Space Federation/The School Factory) looked interesting so I got in
touch with James. Basically it's a sort of online community/social network
for hackerspaces. They share info about cool and fun stuff, but also the
less fun but necessary stuff, so it'd be good to get in touch w/ some of
these people.

He also mentions BarCamp Milwaukee, which is this weekend so not a lot of
advance notice, but also there's apparently a hackerspace documentary in the
works that would be interesting to find more about.

If you all would like to get on Yammer, too, get in touch w/ them via
spacefed at schoolfactory.org

Steve, thanks for participating and reaching out! I've sent you an invite to
Yammer. Over the next few weeks we'll be launching a more permanent home
online using Status.net and OpenAtrium to help us organize this community
together, but for now feel free to start sharing your experience and

I'd love to come visit Bloominglabs--incidentally, BarcampMilwaukee is this
coming weekend (http://barcampmilwaukee.com) if you're interested in
bringing up a group to see our space and meet our geek community. They'll be
out in force as our Barcamp typically has between 150-250 attendees.

Will Jordan Bunker's hackerspace documentary team be stopping by your place?
