Happy Geek Pride Day everyone! Today is a perfect day to:

  1. Tell people all about Gold Coast Tech Space.... spread the word, point them at http://gctechspace.org or better still get them to join our meetup group http://meetup.com/gctechspace
  2. Join Gold Coast TechSpace - all the info you need is at http://gctechspace.org/membership/ - membership is just $40/month or $20/month for Students/Concessions
  3. Support our crowdsourced shelving project at http://ipledg.com/projects/gc-techspace-storage1/347, we are now half way through our funding application and every little bit helps. Shelving is going to make a big difference to our space as we gain more and more equipment and have more projects on the go.

Other updates from me - We are now sistered with Xinchejian hackerspace in Shanghai. We will be shortly starting some interesting projects here on the Gold Coast that they are currently working on over there, the first will probably be the swarm robots project. Join the gctechspace meetup group if you want to be part of this!

Lots more to tell you about but don't want to overload this post, so please consider doing any of the steps above (preferably all of them!).

To find out more about Geek Pride day have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geek_Pride_Day - being on the 25th has nothing to do with my birthday - it was the day that the first Star War film "A new Hope" was released in 1977 which makes it 35 years old! Today is also Towel Day for all the Douglas Adams/HHGTG fans out there http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Towel_Day
