I appreciate the enthusiasm developed for our group projects. This is very healthy for the space, It's good to see this happening. On another note Its been awhile since I met with the Maker Hub folks and I need to have a sit down with one or of them, but I have kept in touch and the project is moving slowly along.

Action: Check in with John S of Pivot Architecture.


Nothing really.


Not much as changed, we have about 20 members. We lost one and gained one.
