Hi there. My name is Rubin. I'm from San Francisco and am with Noisebridge, the hacker space out there. I'm currently on a very spur of the moment trip out here in the Twin Cities (actually writing this from the Spyhouse). I'm friends with Matt Mackall and some other folks who just ran this past MN0 Puzzle Quest.

Anyhow, I wish I thought of doing this sooner. Matt told me there's a Makers group out here and that maybe I should come to a meeting and chat with some of you about some of the highs and lows that we've hit with Noisebridge. This got filed into the back of my brain till just now. After a quick review of your wiki and this forum, it seems like you're all about impromptu short notice like meetings, which is great because I leave for the West coast on Monday.

It would be rad to meet some of you and discuss what you're all looking for in the group and possibly a space. How does Saturday around 3PM at Common Roots sound? The past couple of times I've been around they've tended to be pretty packed, if any of you feel like that might be the case for Saturday, the Spyhouse would work too, or any other public place that isn't outside (to hell with this cold).

I have reply notify enabled so respond back here and I should see it. Thanks and I hope to hear from some of you soon.

P.s. Your forum sends back passwords in plain text.

Update: 5PM at Common Roots.

Also I'm still at the Spyhouse, and will be till they start kicking folks out. I'm a bit of a night owl, wondering if there's anything interesting happening tonight? I'm on bike.

I left early, 5 of them still there. I'd come, but the drive into Minneapolis is a once a week thing for me.

Eep! Yeah, we've still got a few folks here at my place... hi Rubin! You missed some goooood pizza... we've been watching old episodes of Mythbusters. Very full and very tired now; Metis, Wammie & his wife are just about to head out the door.

Heya Rubin-

Which Spyhouse? If you're in the uptown area (which is to say, south and west of downtown Minneapolis)(or, the Spyhouse you were at is on Hennepin Ave), I live right in that area, too. I'd love to grab a coffee/beer with you and swap ideas.

I'll watch this space for a response, but I'll throw out 5 pm Saturday at either Common Roots (26th and Lyndale) or the Spyhouse I think you're at (24th and Hennepin) as options.

Was at the Spyhouse (2451 Nicollet Ave) till close, then attempted to bike West on the Green Way till I got tired. I'm back in Uptown now, fingers very cold.

Tomorrow at 5 PM at Common Roots sounds good. Should I create a new topic under your meetups forums or is this fine? Depends on my plans (or lack there of), I might just be there for most of the day.

This is a mostly accurate photo of what I look like currently...
