Hi folks!  Midsouth Makers will be promoting the group at Midsouthcon today, tomorrow and Sunday.  If you can stop by please do, and bring any projects to show off or work on there.  Daniel H, Mike D and I (Jim H) will be at the “Fan Table” area to hand out literature, show off projects and spread the Maker word.

MidsouthCon is being held at Whispering Woods Conference Center in Olive Branch, MS the 12th through the 14th of March.  There is a fee to get in the door, so be prepared to spend money.

Memphis Hackerspace Pictures from March 5th Makers Meeting

March 5th Midsouth Makers Meeting.

Pictures have been uploaded from the March 5th Meeting. We had a great time and met some new friends from the local 2600 group. We had a few different projects shown off at this meeting including how to modify a cheap ink pen to write like an expensive writing instrument, Jim’s Arduino kit, Daniel’s scarf prototype and a handmade bracelet. We love hearing about any DIY projects or craft projects! Feel free to send us information about your project and we’ll feature it here on the Hackerspace Blog.

Don’t forget that you can keep up with the makers group by following us on twitter, becoming a fan on facebook, or even joining our Google Groups mailing list!

This weekend Daniel and Jim will be at our fan table at MidsouthCon! If you’re going to the con stop by and say hello. We’re having our usual meeting this friday March 12th at Republic Coffee, we hope to see you there. Feel free to bring a friend or a project!

Just as an FYI…I will be appearing on the Fox 13 Morning Show sometime during the 8am hour and on the ABC24 11am news promoting MidSouthCon.  Just look for the silent guy with the big yellow head :).

Fan Table at MidSouthCon

by on Feb.05, 2010, under Events

I was just informed that we WILL have a fan table set aside for us at MidSouthCon, which will take place from March 12th to the 14th at the Whispering Woods Conference Center in Olive Branch, MS (some of you old-timers may remember it better as the Holiday Inn Executive Conference center).

While the table is free, anyone that mans it will need to pay for admission to the convention.  Currently it is $40 for the entire weekend, and will go up to $45 in a week, which is also the at-the-door price.  I will create a wiki page for discussing what we might need for it or can do at the table.
