one year of workshop

Nick Woolley
Hello all,

Just in case you're not keeping track:

   >>  Dorkbot Workshop will be one year old on 12th Feb! <<

(Or as close as  - the first one was 13/2/07.)

Martinling and I noticed this last week, and we were wondering if we
should try and get some feedback, and see if there's anything we might
do differently in 2008.

Here's an idea: maybe we could hold an, er,  "Annual General Meeting".
Maybe on the 12th?  Meet as usual, but with an early option on the pub.
If the response is favourable I can post some more definite details
later, perhaps on the announcements list.

It'd be good if some of the people we've not seen for ages dropped by,
if only to have a chance to catch up.

Those of you who can't make it, we'd like to hear from you too, which is
why I've included a very short questionnaire below.

So:
  * Who would come on the 12th?
  * Who would like to but can't?

And:
  * what's good about dorkbotalba?
  * what's bad about dorkbotalba?
  * do we want to change anything in 2008? e.g.
    - encourage newcomers
    - organise events
    - visit events (other dorkbots?)
    - create more "stuff"
    - discuss/socialise more
    - (--> your ideas here <--)

Cheers,

Nick

I plan to be there on the 12th - and I think an informal discussion on
the occasion of the workshop's birthday is a great idea.

The 12th sounds good to me.

<cop out> All of the above! </cop out>

We mentioned a while ago making up some fliers to put in Maplin (etc), I
think this would be a good idea to pursue and while we're at it I think
a poster or two to put up in the universities would be a good idea.  If
we have any graphic design talent in Dorkbot then we should make use of
that, or I might know a sucker that would help us out.

p.s. Is a "Martinling" a young Martin?
