Space Organising Day

Next one: Saturday 16 July, 11am-midnight (two weekends before the next open day.)

Based on the suggestion in the open day thread:

  • start with a reminder (email & tweet): make sure to label & store your stuff properly, cleanup session coming up. This will give everyone a chance to rescue their crap beforehand.
  • discuss proposals for any bigger infrastructure changes on the infrastructure list (new shelving, new workspace layout, etc.) This ensures that we are well-prepared, and avoids surprises.
  • early July: send out invitation to cleanup & space organising day (via email, IRC, tweet, Fax etc)

And then:

  • mid-July: cleanup & space organising day on a suitable weekend or two (best a Saturday in case we need to buy stuff)
  • 31 July: partay


  • Sorting out the big pile in the middle of unit 23
  • Assessing the state of consumables, see also: Components. Esp:
    • Fixing and fittings: screws etc
    • Electronics components
    • Kitchen roll, toilet paper, laundry
  • Improving the use of storage
    • Misc boxes in unit 23
    • Tools racking
  • Creating a map of storage areas
  • Improving the labelling of tools & storage areas, clean instructions on waste disposal
  • Assessing the state of tools
  • Cleaning. See also: Chores.

Space Refactoring
