Please join us!More info is below and at our website: http://dorkbot.org/dorkbotsea/.TOPIC: FabLab—presentations and demos about 3D fabrication technologiesSPEAKERS:Dominic Muren: teaches Industrial Design and Design Studies at the University of Washington. His research focus is on novel methods of manufacture using flexible machinery and local materials to make modular, hackable products for richer, more resilient economies. He is editor of Humblefacture.com, a blog exploring the development of this new mode of manufacturing..Willow Brugh: director of Jigsaw Renaissance, a Seattle maker space. She also organizes and moderates the Seattle H+ Discussion Group, is a participant at Hackerbot Labs, and just put in her application to UW's law school.Matt Westervelt: owner, Metrix Create:Space, a new makerspace on Capitol Hill. Ten years ago, he started the SeattleWireless.NET project, and co-created the FreeNetworks movement, both in an attempt to make IP networks less top down and distribute ownership throughout the communities that use them. Now he is focusing on more physical aspects of collaboration, and providing a space where you don't DIY, you Do it with Others.INFO:February 3, 20107:00 − 10:00pmUniversity of Washington, Seattle campusArt Building, Room 327VENUE:The Art Building is on the main UW campus. Parking is available in campus lots for $6, or you can usually find metered spaces on nearby streets in the University district. Lots of buses stop quite close, and there are bike racks outside the Art Building. Be aware that there is no cafe open in the Art Building in the evening. The closest place to eat, on campus, is the food court at the HUB student union building. Eat first, or bring a brown bag, but sorry, no alcohol is allowed in the meeting room. There are also plenty of places to eat on University Avenue, just off campus.There will be signs and maybe even live human beings at each entrance directing you to the room, which is on the third floor.
