I've started a wiki for the Brighton MF this year:

http://wiki.hackspace.org.uk/wiki/Brighton_makerfaire



and we need people to volunteer to come along!

Were working out the physical setup at the moment but essentially we
need to take some projects with us that we can show off. I'll bring my
kinect and run some silly things with that, but more "ZOMG FLASHIES"
projects would be cool.

Even if you cant make it yourself I'll happily take projects along for
you

Tom,

I've applied for a stall to sell kits. But I think its unlikely I will
be given this as there are no doubt plenty of people asking for the
same thing. So, if I don't get it i'd be happy to help out.

What are people's plans for MFB?

I'm probably going to go down on the Friday afternoon and stay over.
I also need to leave on the Saturday at about 15:30 :-(

Bob,

I'm going up Friday also and staying overnight. I'll also be staying
overSaturday night as there is a piss-up afterwards.

I'll be setting up my own stall but I am willing to assist others once
I'm done, as it won't take long.

I'm planning on coming down on the Friday but I don't have anywhere to
stay. Any recommendations (I've left it a bit late)?

Don't forget that we've booked the Skiff (BuildBrighton's current home - http://theskiff.org ) from the friday night to the sunday morning for 'MakerCamp' if you need it - and a BB member will be on site at all times if you need access to any of the hackspace resources.

I'm staying here now.
http://www.cosmopolitan1brighton.co.uk/

Their site says two night stay min., but http://www.bookdirectrooms.com/
allowed me to book a single night stay.

Officially it's an invite-only tandem event with the Maker Faire where a bunch (realistically about 20) of the makers can work overnight doing any last minute fixing of their stuff, and then post-event can work overnight with makers from around the country on New Things. You'll have access to all BuildBrighton's kit - laser, logic analyser, 'scopes, soldering stations, component library...

We've booked the space (http://theskiff.org) from 6pm Friday to 11am Sunday.

There will be quiet corners and comfy bean bags, so if anyone needs a snooze then that is more than possible - same deal as most BarCamp's really.

I'll set something up in EventBrite so I can gauge how many folk are planning to attend. I know a few of the NottingHACKers are going to be there for the duration.

I'll let the official rep of London Hackspace's Maker Stand - Tom Bollocksock - decide who is on the list for MakerCamp. Max 4 spots for LHS, space is limited :)

And is there anything I can bring to help with the stand ?
