organize and inventory the space

Primary tabs

We'll be organizing items and materials in the space roughly along the categories listed below. As we sort items, we'll be doing our best to establish ownership, tag it, and enter it into the website inventory system. Our end goal is to have an obvious and documented location for every item in the space, for every item in the space to be tagged, and for it to be tagged with owner and usage info.

If you have personal items in the space that should not be mixed with space-owned items, please tag them by 6 PM on Tuesday, June 18 2013. If you can't make it to the space before then, please let either Peter or me know about those items, again, by 6 PM on Tuesday, June 18 2013.  Sometime in the near future (TBD; the end of July?), items that have not been claimed by a member will default to the space; we'll be keeping everyone informed of this process via the mailing-list and member meetings, to ensure that everyone's belongings are handled with respect.
