Warrington's easier for me than Chester, but I suspect the latter
might have more initial interest - have you tried posting on
Chester LUG (& sc.lug & liverpool lug)?

Cheers,

Hi Daniel,

I'm happy to post it on the Chester LUG mailing list to gauge interest for you.

Les

Hi Les, 

If you could post on the Chester LUG group that would be great. 

There seems to quite a lot of interest!!

May I need to start a specific user group somewhere so we can get an idea of numbers?

A number of people have emailed me expressing an interest in having a local meet / exploring the possibility of generating a local hacker community. 

I think for now we should focus people to this thread and try and keep all the conversation together. 

Its looking quite promising!!

Thanks, 

Dan

"Manage" in the loosest possible sense of the word :-/ [1]

If you get a wordpress.com account [2] & let me know, I'll add
you to http://nwhackspace.wordpress.com/ users.

If you'd rather not create an account, just send me words+pic
and I'll post it for you.

Cheers,

- Richard

[1] All contributions still welcome, though :-)

I would suggest creating a new Google Groups group (or similar) for the discussions. I'd also post to the UK-Hackspaces Google Group [1], and possibly to the HacMan list [2] (as I believe there may be people who travel in to Manchester from Chester). Also, have a look on the UK Hackspace wiki [3] about adding your group there.

[3] http://hackspace.org.uk

All the best,

Ok, i have started a group called Chester Hackspace: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!forum/chester-hackspace

Maybe we can move this conversation there?

Les, 

Can you send another email to the LUG and share the user group address?

+1

btw Jon, would you like to post something about madlab's
latest activities to
http://nwhackspace.wordpress.com/
?

Let me know & I'll send you an invite.

Cheers,

Hi Richard, I'm afraid to say I'm pretty out of touch with what MadLab are doing these days, and I'm only vaguely aware of what HacMan are doing. Your contacts here are office {at } madlab.org.uk and the HacMan mailing list.

Since my son was born, I've barely even get to one user group meeting each month, but I keep my oar in the geek scene by following (or, in some cases, moderating) mailing lists for Things I'm Interested In, and occasionally twitter.

No worries - enjoy the next two decades of
exhaustion and no time, it's well worth it [1] :-)

[1] Or three decades in our case, as our youngest is 10 years
younger than our eldest.

Hi Daniel,

I've sent the link out, so hopefully you'll get some interest. Best of luck with it.

That's great, Thanks Les. 

It would be fantastic if we could get a regular local meet going, i look forward to meeting like minded people and seeing what sort of projects they are working on. 

Thanks again.
