On Friday 12 Aug 2011, the Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup is gathering at 6 p.m. at
Cruzio & Ecology Action Green Building
877 Cedar Street, Santa Cruz, CA
to discuss the Makers Factory that is starting in Santa Cruz in October. (I blogged about the Makers Factory already.)
Details about the event are on the meetup web page—I’ve already committed to going, despite the $5 cost. So far, it looks like they will not be getting the sort of expensive shop equipment that places like TechShop (over the hill) have, but lower-priced stuff suitable for a home shop. I hope this means that they’ll be a lot cheaper than TechShop, which is $100 a month.
