- Motivating wishes and budgeting guidelines
- Buying or begging?
- Clean out results
Preparing this meeting will take some time for all of us, and good input in advance is certainly appreciated even if you don't want or can't be at the event.
Please remember that, many things in life seem to be an exercise in retrospect :) Inventing the future is mostly not for regular human beings, re-iterating on the same subjects seems mostly unavoidable, only the context changes. We all should somehow get used to this.
Motivating wishes and budgetting guide lines
Both subjects are highly related and formally missing for the space. The list of rules and guidelines to properly motivate for a financial or other investment in the space is to be made into the 'HouseRules'.
Some examples for those that want to flesh this out more properly:
- The minimum number of people that supports the proposal should be 3 or more
- The budget cost at which these rules are enforced are EUR 50
- If the requested budget exceeds 50 euro you will need to discus this at the monthly meeting.
No time line yet, but after VoidCon, say August/September 2011 we should have some idea to discuss a first draft and test the rules. Volunteers please step in and make that rule set your project!
Buying or begging
Keep your eyes and ears open at schools and companies that you feel might have equipment that they want to subsidize or support.
A ruleset for how and what our sponsoring rules should look like is in the works. Ilias, will publish in Augustus 2011. Feel free to contribute your thought surrounding the subject by contacting him. Ilias will try with some others from the space to set up a test case with his current employer to find out how interaction with a likely interested party works out.
The clean out results
Consensus is that we as the space want to invest budget to buy a router, that can assist in projects for precision drilling, reaming and cutting . Optional horizontal operation to use it as a lath. Budget Eur 800,-. Descision around oktober what to buy and where.
