July GO-Tech meeting, this Tuesday


Bob Stack, of GO-Tech writes:

The July GO-Tech (Ann Arbor, MI) meeting is tomorrow, July 14, at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome.

We’ll have the usual assortment of 5-minute presentations–so bring your cool demos. Topics in the past have ranged from metal casting to printed circuit board design to web-based home automation and everything in between.

We meet at 7 pm at A2 MechShop, a shared technical office/shop space located at 240 Parkland Plaza, Ann Arbor, MI 48103.

We have a video projector (VGA, composite), wireless Internet, copier, etc. If you have an idea for a talk longer than 5 minutes, let me know!

GO-Tech (formerly NotBAGO) is a meeting for Ann Arbor area readers of MAKE, Circuit Cellar, Home Shop Machinist, Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools, Slashdot, etc. That is, people who are interested in and make things using technology, whether that’s a metal cutting lathe or a Python script. A kind of generalized mixture of CerealBar, Dorkbot, Oxford Geek night, and Portland Machinist Guild. We have machinists, electrical engineers, software folks, industrial control types, and so on. We share projects, information about tools and ideas, and connect with like-minded people.

Meetings are generally the second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm.

For details and to join the email list, go to the GO-Tech Yahoo page (under our old name, NotBAGO).
