Minneapolis’ own Happy Mutant and resident science blogger extraordinaire, Maggie Koerth-Baker, is putting together a local wing of Boing-Boing’s first International BB Meetup Day. This is of particular interest to us because of the theme: “Wonderful Things”:
On June 7, bring your favorite significant object, coveted curiosity, conversation piece, or mysterious item to the Meetup (Don’t bring something that has a lot of intrinsic value). Then tell the other happy mutants about it!
While you’re at the Meetup, share your thoughts on the items that you see, and if you are so inclined, offer up a swap! Don’t forget to tweet your photos, videos, and details on any exciting swaps using hashtag #BoingBoingMUP.
Check in on the meetup.com page for the event- there are already 8 names on the list and I don’t recognize any of them! This is a great chance to meet some makers from outside the group and see some neat stuff.
Twin Cities Maker (TC Maker) is a community group based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Our mission is to make, share, and learn.
We have opened a maker space/hackerspace for members to build projects using various media and technologies, from wood and metal working to electronics to fabrics and beyond. We call our space the Hack Factory.
Open house Wed: 7-9pm
