Ideas, making, fun

  • Publicity - How to contact us and past publicity.
  • Project Proposals - Share your ideas for projects. Things you want to work on, things you think other people should work on, things you'd like to learn more about. If you want some help clarifying your ideas, the discussion list would probably be the best place for that.
  • Event Proposals - Share your ideas for events or workshops you'd like to host, teach, or run at the Node's space.
  • Workshop1 - Code and links from the arduino-powered, Twitterable Ambient Orb.
  • Challenges - Creativity thrives in competition? Maybe. Add your challenge ideas. Baltimore Node XPrize, ftw!


  • Things to fill the Space - Stuff we've got and stuff we need.

  • Grants - possible sources of funding
  • Parts store - small consumables to keep at the Node in return for small donations
  • Outreach and inclusion - a list of groups, organizations, and populations in the baltimore area we want to reach out to to make sure they know we exist (e.g., diy/electronic music, interactive and multimedia artists, colleges and universities). If you know anyone related to or connected to a group on the list, talk to them and tell them what we're trying to do and find out how we can help them do what they do.
  • Logo idea
