Geekup Blackpool 23/01/2012

New Year, new ideas!

Geekup Blackpool 23/01/12
Well ,it was all change at Geekup Blackpool this month.

With a reduced number of attendees, we decided to have an informal chat about communities in Blackpool. There was no audio recorded at this geekup.

It was quickly decided that Blackpool really has a lack of venues for events, places for groups to meet, and places that contain the equipment needed for various groups.

So what can we do about it?

Well at next months Geekup Blackpool we will have an open floor, a debate / discussion on what we can do to create this space, sustain it, and what services / facilities we can offer.

In the meantime, I ask that you take five minutes, and add your ideas to our Google Document

What can we do to make this a success?

Don’t forget it’s still not too late to fill in the co-working survey

Would you like a space to work with others? Collaborate, network, present ideas?

In other news

Lee aka @FY5 on Twitter brought along the smallest PC I have ever seen.

It’s called a cubox and it is an ARM based PC that can play 1080p video!

It costs €99 and is fantastic. It can run a variety of Linux operating systems (Ubuntu being the default, but it can also run Android) and is very conservative when it comes to power consumption.

Mmm I think I need one.

Thanks for coming!
