After a short hiatus, Dorkbot-socal is revived with a new home, a new time, and new structure - and a new twist for January: we're trying out a free-form "open hack" concept for the entire event. To get more hands-on-hacking going on, every 2nd month (starting in January) will be a "bring your project and work on it" event, featuring semi-regular appearances by the guru Tom Jennings wps.com, the svelte Mark Allen markallen.com/ and grubby old me, Garnet Hertz conceptlab.com. This should be a good time to bring works in progress, get feedback/help, and see what others are doing. I think this will also be a good opportunity to scout out neat stuff for future (more formal) presentations for upcoming events.

So: grab your stuff, tools, sketches, ideas and friends and come on out on Saturday Jan 7th at 1pm at Machine Project.

We're meeting on Saturday afternoons (at 1pm) now, which will hopefully make it easier for people to come to events. To keep things consistent (and MapQuesting confusion to a minimum) we're going to hold the events at a regular location over the next while: Machine Project Gallery, a perfect match for Dorkbot. The 3-presentations/demo events will occur every 2nd month (feb, april, june, aug, oct, dec) and odd-numbered months (jan, march, may, july, sept, nov) will be in an open hack/lab/studio (aka "opendork") format. these events are built for people to just bring their projects-in-progress, work on them, get feedback/help, and discuss.
