For the Staffordshire ppl on the list, There's a meeting
in N Staffs next Weds for Geeks & for creatives interested
in a new hackspace :)

Please note this will also be the most Southerly GeekUp
ever! A good opportunity to find out what you've been
missing by being stuck down South in the Midlands ;-P

  Short Version:

RT @hsNW #hackspace meeting at new @GeekUp N Staffs & Chesh group. 7pm
Weds 5/5/10 The Lodge, Alsager http://ur1.ca/xmio All welcome, pls RT

[ http://identi.ca/notice/30324362 ]

Longer Version:
North Staffs & Cheshire Geeks can no longer complain about the lack of
meeting opportunities, as GeekUp moves south.
Theme of the first meeting: Setting up a local hackspace.

A hackspace is a building (or room) where people
can play creatively with technology: just let your
imagination take you where it will. Everything
from arduino-powered robots [1] to circuit board

Come along to The Lodge, Alsager http://ur1.ca/xmio
7pm, Weds 5th May, 2010 - a hackspace is not just
a building, but a group of interested people, so
we need you all :-)

We have a function room booked, with WiFi & projector.

Easy to get to by train from Crewe & Stoke.
Hope to see some of you there    :-)

For those not familiar with GeekUp, there's some
info below:

"What is GeekUp?
"GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other
tech-minded folk from the UK. It's a grassroots knowledge sharing and
networking social for folks involved or interested in the web and
technology industry. Monthly events take place in Chester, Leeds,
Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Sheffield.

"Who can attend GeekUp?
"While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody
involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a
GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy your
own beer."

& for those not too sure what a hackerspace is,

Just turn up on the night, we'll be there until at least 10pm.
