So we found this product called IdeaPaint (http://www.ideapaint.com/) which is paint that turns your wall into a big dry erase board.
Less than 24 hours to go until our deadline; will you help us over the $5k mark?
First and foremost, we would like to shout out a big THANK YOU to all of you who have already contributed to our project! In just 18 days (out of 45), we passed our goal of $3,000 and we're still on the move.
Some of you have asked for some additional details on what exactly we mean when we say "build out" our space, so I wanted to provide that for you. Our primary project is the construction of a loft. While we are pretty comfortable right now with our amount of space, we see an immediate need for the ability for expansion as we add new faces to the crowd. Along those lines, we are currently drawing up plans to construct a loft space over a small portion of our hacker space to give us a few hundred more square feet for storage, meeting space, and whatever other uses we can find for it. It is unlikely that the Kickstarter money will pay for the whole thing (unless some of you are overly generous!), but it will definitely help us defray the costs.
Our secondary project is the creation of massive local storage and VM box for entertainment and research, including a repository of all conference videos we can get our hands on (and we already have a lot!).
The Kickstarter money will help us seriously defray the costs of these projects, and in the end this will help us reduce dues to make the space more affordable for everyone.
Finally, let us take one last opportunity to THANK YOU again for the donations that you have made, or will make in the near future. We are so very excited about the opportunities that your support has enabled. Even though we have already met our goal, we would like to encourage you to give--your support will help to expand the capabilities of what we are able to do.
The members of Unallocated Space
First of all, we would like to thank those of you who have already contributed to our project! In the first 10 days, we have already reached 65% of our project goal. Without the dedicated support of you and other Kickstarter members, this would not have been possible. So thank you!
Things are moving fast! In the past week, we officially moved into our space. Truckloads of electronics, chairs, tables, and other assorted donations have been brought to the space, and it's filling up fast. The walls are painted, the blinds have gone up, but there are so many things left to do.
In the next few days, we will post another update, hopefully with a video, to show you the progress we have made. In that way, we hope to convince you that your donation to our project is worthwhile--we couldn't do all that we have planned without you. One of our major projects which we hope to fund with the Kickstarter donations is the construction of a loft which will significantly increase the amount of space available to us. This will allow us to grow as we expand our influence within the community.
Lastly, let us take one final opportunity to thank you again for the donations that you have made, or will make in the near future. We are excited about the opportunities that your support has enabled. Please stay tuned for more updates (pictures, videos) in the immediate future.
