Finally got out of my box and attended a meeting, and wow. Neat stuff, the little breadboard hooked up to a TV showing all kinds of bars and squares was fascinating. Jason's Mylar speaker balloons were way cool, too, at least until smoking the little transformers he was using.
So supposedly there is a DorkBot event on March 30th, at PNCA, with presentations and such. Or maybe I heard Thomas wrong. Looking for more details, found none on web. Eyes open, mind alert. Will get Maxwell over there for robot representation.
