Raspberry Pi Followup
« on: October 08, 2012, 01:59:49 PM »
Just got this email from Liz:



Not half! We had a brilliant time; thanks so much for the gracious hospitality. Finally back in the UK - we managed to see the Falcon 9 launch from the plane, a few hundred miles north of Orlando. :)

I'll try to get those cases signed for you at the next board meeting later this week. Thanks again for looking after us so well; we had a blast!


I gave her a few case lids, they said next time they're in the states they'll get it sent on over. Looks like we'll have some Pis signed by the board of the Pi foundation around the lab :D


In any case, sounds like they really enjoyed it. They asked for the footage and pics from the night, so once we get edited video and pics, post them here and I'll send em on over. Thanks!

I think they liked Pocky a lot. That or he had the only bottle opener. Either way, its a win for everyone. :)


I know we had well over 50 people in the lab, as crudely head counted by Ian from the front. We did great with the baking and case sales, and even took in a few donations. We have some follow up to do with those who gave us their email addresses for cases, but I really think there's potential to grow our community through events like these. We had at least on inquiry about membership since the event, so all in all, it was an epic win.


A big thank you to everyone who had a hand in the clean up, set up, logistics, and project building process. I'm pretty sure they'll call us the hackerspace that all the other ones call Sir, for quite awhile.

I crudely headcounted from the pallet rack, so I could see the people outside, and then estimated the number of people I knew were inside, and I ended up right around 60.
