Howdy folks,

As everyone probably knows, Ed has moved to Pittsburgh to start his new
job at CMU. We got a lot done before he left and we've made a lot more
progress on the new space in the last week. We now have power and AC. A
lot of the DPRG equipment was moved in over the weekend. 

We've still got a lot to do and there are a couple of ToDo lists:

decisions we need to make with regard to the space itself:

2. The organizational ToDo list - this one tracks the steps we need to
go through to become a fully autonomous organization:

Makerspace member and DPRG member to succeed Ed as the chair of the
DPRG's makerspace steering committee. Mark Havens has offered to take

opinions on the subject?
