Eugene was using this mind map (PDF, MM) to present his workshop that you can

follow with these workshop notes edited by Eugene.

You can still contribute to the perfect NJA logo quest.

As for now we received 3 logos (2 by Perry, 1 by mentar) but other members said they were interested in creating their own designs.

Please add your creations to this mailing list thread so all members can see them and comment:


For inspiration you can compare to what the other London Hackspace subgroups have done:

Music Hackspace logo http://bit.ly/Sstcvz

Video Hackspace logo http://www.videohackspace.org/

Graphics Hackspace logo https://twitter.com/ihackgraphics

Should we put a deadline for the logo contributions so we can vote on the more popular design?

Subgroups and the New Space layout

We will move soon to a new space and if you think our group needs some requirements (like other sub-groups), please contribute to the wiki page:


Suggestions, project updates, good links. Please contribute

Last night, Sue got the Matrix display to work with Solexious' library, hope to meet with her to work on that if we have time before the next event).
