Hackforge, Central Branch, Windsor Public Library
This will be a ‘First Steps’ meeting with two topics on our agenda. The first will be a discussion on whether we should participate in a local Open311 initiative.
The second matter will be a discussion whether we’d like to be involved in any data *collection* work, and if so, with what common theme. Possible ideas include:
- energy related
- your suggestions
If you have any questions or suggestions, you can let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Interested in being a part of it or just want to keep up with what we’re up to? Sign up for our low volume email newsletter or keep tabs on us via Twitter.

We have had a malfunction of the access system, as such key cards aren’t working. Hopefully we should have the problem fixed on Saturday.

Those interested in art, sound and light might be interested in this opportunity to collaborate in a project from the Incubator Art Lab:
From today’s Daily News article from the University of Windsor
Jennifer Willet, a professor in the School for Arts and Creative Innovation, wants people to march in the Eco Nuit parade on October 5. The parade is part of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, an annual sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art.
In collaboration with the Ontario Science Centre’s !dea Gallery, the procession will be a parade of “local nocturnal ecology” that will “illuminate and reveal a menagerie of living organisms via digital media and phosphorescence,” according to Dr. Willet, who specializes in bio-art, and is director of the University’s Incubator lab.
Interested artists can make glow-in-the-dark costumes, and devices that emit sound and light. Marchers eager to join the parade will be given masks, streamers, noisemakers, and take-home lab experiments, Willet said.
The deadline for proposals is August 20th.
