Make Haven

Co Hosted with newhaven.io

This meetup is dedicated to the design practices, technologies, insights and opportunities around the next frontier information access - the Internet of Things (IoT). We want to cross-pollinate ideas from engineers, designers, researchers, data scientists and entrepreneurs to create meaningful and tangible solutions that will make information access more human, ubiquitous and commercially viable.

Blade Left Circular Saws

So about 25 years ago I lived in a 5000sf loft space for $500/mo. The windows were falling out and the heat was splotchy but I was young and resilient and it was a great place to host parties with garage bands (NH post crack-war, pre-boom days, ahh nostalgia)… We had to build our own rooms which were more like little boxes inside of a big room so, fresh out of college I commenced to buying tools. One of my first buys was a Dewalt circular saw. I forget the model but it was simple, lightweight, trustworthy and I loved it.

Green Tech and Hydroponics Stuff

I own a company called Kensho SEED, and I want to use this space to project out some ideas around energy, and food systems. I'm putting together a business supplying restaurants with hydroponic growing indoors and on rooftops, and I want to expand into other areas (psst Andrew, we've spoken about algae and some of this stuff).  I'm also planning workshops for late winter that will involve compost and hydroponics on a residential level, and a program designed around guiding the process and building small scale units.

Make Haven
Free Artists of New Haven is creating a collaborative project for the community that enable people from all walks of life to make art together.
 
They asked us to invite any MakeHaven members who want to participate. People can come on Wednesdays from 12 - 3 or Saturdays from 1-5  during November to create the mural.

Join us for our second Support Tech Sunday!  The idea is simple: bring in a computer hardware/software project to hack on and ask for help and suggestionsWe're not tech support; instead, we're here to support tech.  It's not about fixing your computer for everyday tasks... it's about reviving dead machines, showing spare parts some TLC, and giving lonely motherboards a renewed purpose.

We're now doing this on a bi-weekly schedule, Sundays 11:00am - 3:00pm.
