New Wiki for Maui Makers – mostly Chill Box at present

Ben W did a big cleanup job a few weeks back and it was good for a couple days.  However the spammers came back, got around the blocks (creating 100s of user accounts) and ... Read More »

Our First Container, at its old home.

We have talked about using containers to create our space.  Cole, Tommy and others have played with various designs on their own for a long time.  The Community Work Day folks have said we could put containers on their space.

We had our first meeting last night (4/14/11) in our new temp space in Pu’unene. Although there was a small turn out (5 total), I consider it a success.
