Afternoon All,

Just touching base and give an update on what I’ve been up to in terms of a local Maker Movement/Space.

I’ve met with the Mobile Makerspace( http://MakerspaceMobile.org )  and received valuable info from them.  They been going at for over a year now and have finally settled into a physical space.  They’re open house and events ( http://makerspacemobile.org/events/ ) are listed in the forwarded email.  When possible I’ll be involved with this group.  If any of you are interested in joining me at any of their meetings and events, please subscribed to their newsletter to stay informed.

Also, I’ve also requested a non-profit to submit an entry on behalf of a future local Makerspace for a 3D CNC machine.  If the submission is approved/granted, the Makerspace will have it’s first prototyping machine.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Additionally, I would like to see what you all have done to get a Maker Movement/Space going for South Mississippi.  If you have done any of the following please email me, Juan at JuanCastillo.com:

·         made contact with another Maker/Hacker Space

·         Spread the word to friends, co-workers or other Special Interest/User Groups

·         Researched into the subject

·         or anything else that relates to us getting a Makermovement going for South Mississippi and eventually creating a Maker/Hacker Space locally

Finally, I’ll be in Mobile for a business meeting and for Mobile Makerspace’s event on 21-June but can come back to Long Beach around the end of the scheduled meeting for SMLUG to discuss our Makerspace.  Email me and I’ll send all interested a calendar invite so it’ll be added to my schedule.

Juan Castillo.
