  • As of this writing, we have 555 events in 151 cities already in the system. With eight weeks to go, we are well on our way to our goal of 2400 events.
  • Check out the #MakerParty thread on Twitter for photos, inspiration, and general Maker enthusiasm:

SFO Boardroom Display Upgrade

  • To reduce room start-up and shut-down times, bring the conference room up to Mozilla’s latest AV standards, and help improve seamless conferencing – the SFO Boardroom displays have been upgraded. Two 90″ displays (yes, two 90 inch displays) have been added as a replacement to the single projector w/ drop down screen. Next time you are in SFO, book out the Boardroom and let us know what you think of the upgrade!
