NYC Resistor Interactive Show on May 7th
NYCR will be hosting our super duper Interactive Show. The theme this year is ANYTHING INTERACTIVE. That’s right, ANYTHING… INTERACTIVE. That includes people, peoples! Music? Yeah, we got it. Blinking lights? hello? c’mon, you know we got that covered! Stabby things? Why do you think we have an 18+ policy?
So come and be creative, come and grab a drink, come and meet the Resistors. Screw it, it’s a Saturday night and we like to have an excuse for a blow out kind of party so just come! $10 tickets in advance, $15 tickets at the door.

Great Global Hackerspace Challenge Begins to Wrap Up
Very soon the 28 (or so) hackerspaces participating in the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge will be reduced to a handful of finalists. The above video, by folks at Vienna, Austria’s Metalab hackerspace, demonstrates their project. Good luck to all participants, and we look forward to seeing the results!

Maker Faire Info Meeting & Signup @ i3 Detroit
Detroit Maker Faire may be 88 days away but the call to makers ends in less than 30. It’s time to dust off that keyboard and post your entry.
At our next member meeting on Tuesday (5/3 @ 7:30 pm) we will have a representative from the Maker Faire Team to give us some background on this year’s event and to help with any questions you might have on signing up.
i3 Detroit already has a number of projects in the works both group and individual. We will have details on those at the event as well.

Help NESIT Build an Alarm System
NESIT (New England Society of Information and Technology) in Meriden, CT, is organizing a Pledgie campaign to help finance an alarm system for the space.
As many of you know NESIT was recently burglarized resulting in many items belonging to NESIT and members being stolen. To help prevent this from ever happening again we would like to raise funds to purchase the most advanced state of the art alarm system we can afford. Your donation will directly support this cause and any funds collected will go toward this goal.
Are you a hackerspace member with an event you’d like to publicize? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me at @johnbaichtal and I’ll post it.
