Thanks to all for last week. Having your energy in the building really
gives me confidence that we can make this happen.
I am glad to see you discussing format for What's in the Box?, but
let's also consider a date. January 17th is Martin Luther King Day.
Seems like a good, general date to shoot for. Two questions: would a
holiday prevent people from attending? What would need to happen in
the space to get it ready for an event 8 weeks from now?
Other things: Molly Slevin is working on a floor plan for the space to
include in the NSF grant application. I have encouraged her to post an
image to the wiki when she finishes.
We have asked our counsel to look into liability. Encouraging news: he
doesn't see any major issues.
I am in Cincinnati for the holiday and hoping to visit Hive 13. I will
let you know if I see anything helpful. Have a good holiday, all!
