Next meeting: Justin Winter on the Donner 2.0 Team

Time: Monday, September 12 · 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Pizza On The Hill

Don't miss our next meeting: Justin Winter, CEO of McCormick&Winter to present about the "Donner 2.0" participation in the Red Bull Creation competition.

Winter is “fired up” about the upcoming meeting: “We are a ragtag group of skiers metal artists, photographers, computer programmers, and enginerds from Lake Tahoe that like to tame fire and electricity and warp them with our hands into thought provoking and awe inspiring works of participatory art!

We are planning to bring our Red Bull Creation qualifier entry to the meeting, which is a grandfather clock that shoots fire on the hour. We can talk a bit about the competition we recently competed in NYC this past July. We can also talk about the state of the "maker" scene, nationally and locally, interactive art, the rise of micro electronics, including the Arduino and prototyping breakout boards."

Before and after the discussion, there will also be time for networking with other technology people who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

The meeting is sponsored by Truckee-based creative and technical services company New Leaders.
Dinner will be $5, which includes pizza, salad, and soda.
