Portland Dorkbot will be having an informal gathering on Wednesday, December 5th at 7:30pm at Vendetta on N Williams. Come on down and bring your mom.
We're generally pretty easy to spot. Be on the lookout for out-of-place uncomfortable dorks with glowing laptop screens and piles of gadgetry on the tables. Amen.
Despite the oncoming of Turkey day, DorkbotPDX will not be put down. Come join us for full on geekery and weirdness. Bring your toys and your sense of adventure, but more importantly bring yourself.
It's on like DONKEY KONG!
A group of like-minded dorkbot people will be conducting a casual social experiment over drinks at Vendetta at 7:30pm on Wednesday, 11/07.
This is a work in progress -- originally intended to be used as an announcement flyer for the first November casual meeting, I later decided that although the idea is solid, the casuals just don't warrant it and I should be focusing my limited efforts elsewhere. :)
Of course, if you feel motivated, you can download the original Gimp file and tweak it and customize it to your liking! Reuse and recycle!
It's that time again....Dorkbot PDX...nerding it up in style.
Please join us for a causal gathering at Vendetta on N. Williams in Portland on 10/24/2007 at 7:30pm. Bring a project or gadget or a desire to learn and tinker! Our meetings are open to the public, and we're really a friendly and engaging group, so come on down! Bonus points to those with SCARY HALLOWEEN THEMED projects or ideas. :)
[Note: I originally had this as a comment post to Don's blog entry (below?), but it spiraled out of control and I decided it eventually warranted its own entry. Why not use the email list for such discussions, huh?]
Come one! Come all!
Tomorrow (Wednesday, 10/10) will be the next casual meeting of Portland area dorks
---DORKBOT PDX--- //////people doing strange things with electricity
Do any of you know David Santos? He is an aerospace robotoid from Austin who called himself the Portland Clown House Science officer because he was staying there when I met him.
I'm a freelance writer. I recently (September, 2007) wrote a cover story for Hipfish Monthly about the West Coast Convergence for Climate Action (a big protest of a proposed liquefied natural gas treatment plant on the lower Columbia river). The article included a big chunk about David Santos' kite-powered cell phone charger. I dig gizmos and managed to make that a significant part of the article.
While doing a quick look-see through my morning feeds, I saw a picture that looked quite familiar. Well, turns out it _is_ familiar: I do believe that's Alexis' rendering of Jarod's Chronulator. Congrats to both!
Just a quick reminder to let people know that the next DorkbotPDX meeting will be tomorrow, Wednesday, 9/26 7:30pm at Bar Vendetta on N. Williams in (duh!) Portland (duh!) Oregon.
BE THERE or be a square wave!
It's a casual gathering of like-minded chumps with a bent toward the electronic! Join us for an evening of heavy nerding and extreme dorking. Fanny packs are optional!
Bring a fun electroproject or some broken circuits to dismantle and throw at the hipsters. It's a good fun time, open to all.
