    DorkbotPDX Open Mic Surgery
    through
    Someday Lounge
    • When: Monday, December 17th, 2012 :: 8pm
    • Where: Someday Lounge (map) (just two doors down from Backspace)
    • Who: DorkbotPDX and YOU!
    • Cost: Free! Open to the public!

    We will be taking advantage of the audio/visual system to have an open-mic style event. Think: OpenDork meets OpenMic. Bring your own signal!

    Signal ideas:

    • Music performance
    • Video (short film, realtime performance)
    • Ignite style quick talk
    • Reading source code

    To keep things moving, we're going to have slots that you sign up for. We will try our best to stay on schedule and enforce the following limits:

    Setup: 5 minutes
    Performance: 8 minutes

    To sign up, add your name to the wiki page above. We're trying to keep the audio and video slots independently available, so if you're performing some sound based work, someone else could present video work at the same time. If this won't work for you (because it's a quick talk for example) sign up for both audio and video in that slot.

    See you there.

    DorkbotPDX Meeting

    Someday Lounge

    Part hackathon, part geek social, these biweekly meetings are a time for you to come join others for insight, inspiration or just insanity. Bring your toys for others to see, or come see what others have been painstakingly chipping away at in their spare time. Whether it's code or chips, hacking of all sorts is encouraged. But we also like to hear your crazy ideas, so please come join us and bring your willingness to share your brilliance. We'll be the kids with all the coolest stuff on the table. Hope to see you there.

    An 'A-list' group of robot lovin' luminaries will judge the awards, including typography icon Roger Black, Mark Frauenfelder of MAKE Magazine and BoingBoing.net, Merlin Mann of 43folders.com, Molly Holzschlag of Molly.com, Renny Gleeson of Weiden+Kennedy, Armin Vit of UnderConsideration, Scott Porad of LOLCATS and many others.

    Oh, and did we mention that WebVisions attendees get a special 2-for-1 deal? What are you waiting for? The deadline is April 15th.

    DorkbotPDX friday nite dorkout

    Someday Lounge

    Come join us Friday evening at Someday Lounge (http://www.somedaylounge.com). We've been invited to bring our particular brand of dorkiness and geekdom and show it off. This will be much like our usual meetings (so bring your toys!) but we'll also be giving folks the opportunity to make a lot of noise and get up on the stage.

    The fun begins at 9PM and among the activities will be:

    • Don, performing on the computer-enhanced bass guitar
    • Jason and Jared, aka CRM114 Discriminator, performing an avant/noise piece originally premiered at ToorCamp
    • Simran, with the feedback organ
    • Peter, with his suitcase of mystery
    • You!

    Seriously, if you have something you'd like to show off, let us know and we'll get you some time on the mic. Preferrably, ping Jason, Don or me beforehand so we have some idea of what to expect, but don't worry if it's all last minute. We'll be setting up at 8, so feel free to come down early and to help out or just hang out and keep us company.

    Here's a map if you don't know where it is -- but if you've been to one of the Monday night meetups, it's just around the corner:

    IDSA 3BY10 - Portland's Creative Community in 30 Minutes

    Someday Lounge

    3BY10 is a monthly presentation and networking event, in which three creative professionals or students from the Portland area get ten minutes each to present a recent project, discuss a trend, or just talk about the local design scene. Talks include time for questions and discussion and socializing afterwards. Admission is always free.

    This month’s 3BY10 will be held on Wendesday, June 24, featuring a somewhat altered (and improved, we hope) format from past months. We're moving the entire event to the Someday Lounge - 125 NW 5th Ave, allowing us access to their beautiful space, stage, and projection facilities, as well as their generous happy hour, which runs until 8pm. Our hope is that this will attract a few more folks who don't like "talks" as much as more casual events, while still offering a fantastic speaking venue. The schedule will also include a short intermission, and Q&A after each speaker, rather than clustered at the end. Come join us and see how it works out!

    6:00p - First two presenters + Q&A 6:30p - Intermission 6:40p - Third presenter + Q&A 7:00p - Social hour

    This month’s presenters:

    Bill DeRouchey - Interaction Designer, ZIBA Freddy Weigle - Industrial Design Graduate, Art Institute of Portland Carl Alviani - Industrial Designer and Editorial Director of Coroflot.com
