Are you reading this post from the Detroit metro area? Then come to i3 Detroit this evening for Open Shop Friday! Guests welcome, bring a project to hack on, bring a friend or two, you know the drill…
But if you’re in Kalamazoo, or know any hackers/makers who are, you might want to get involved in Xipherspace. There isn’t a hackerspace/makerspace in every town quite yet, but new ones seem to be popping up quite often! The most surprising part? They cited us as an inspiration, and let me tell you, that’s an amazing bit of flattery.
If you’re in another area, leave a comment on this post! I’m curious how far-flung our blog readership is, and even more curious what your experiences have been when visiting other spaces around the state, country, or world.
Calling all non-members!
If you’ve never been to the space before, Open Shop Friday is the best time to do it. Come get a tour, work on a project, or just hang out. What are you waiting for?
Doors will be open by 7pm, likely earlier. Bring a friend…

Geeks? With games? Surely you can’t be serious.
I am serious. And tonight’s the first night for it, so let’s see what happens! Members and guests alike, are welcome to pull up a chair and giggle about sheep and wood. Sorry about the short notice, but now it’s on the calendar for next time…
*WARNING* HALLOWEEN PARTY IMMINENT *WARNING*
Just a friendly reminder. Put all those little final touches on your costume and head out to our halloween party tonight! Matt has rigged up a personal interactive LED display for people to mess with. Send tweets to @MattsCostume tonight (7pm and later) to display your tweet on his sign. Pretty cool! Be sure to do a twitter search for @MattsCostume after the event to read all of the past hilarity that he had to walk around with. Dont be too wordy though, the sign is only capable of displaying 76 characters at once, so you’ll get cut off if you ramble too much! See the video below:
We’ve got quite an event lined up. Halloween is fast approaching, and if there’s one thing nerds like to do, it’s wear nerdy costumes. JOIN UP! CHECK-IN, RSVP, YELP-SQUARE-TWEETLUR-BOOK or whatever you kids do these days. Just fill up all the internet tubes! yadda yadda. Spam this out to your friends.
We’ll have some phat beats dropping and mad costumes. We’ll also entertain serious discussions about how awesome Jurassic Park was, your favorite molecule, and hopefully… HOPEFULLY someone does the ninja rap, Go ninja go ninja GO!
The thing that makes this event extra exciting is it coincides with Ted’s 40th birthday. This means two things for you: free booze (thanks Ted!), and an excuse to heckle an old man about his age, you ungrateful people!
To cap it all off, we’ll be making ice cream with liquid nitrogen. Yeah, you read that right. LIQUID.NITROGEN. Insanely fast, insanely cold. What more do you need to know? Go get your calendar right now and put a big ol’ circle in the shape of a pumpkin around the 29th!
