SIXTY: more networking, more excuses

First off I have been in charge of a whole revegetation crew for the past three weeks so my time online has been slashed drastically again. I am a bit more tired by the end of a 10 hour workday so I spend less time reading things, and I haven't been programming again for a while now.

So I am being the usual lame.

I really wanted to go to the Melbourne Hardware Startup meeting and also the new Footscray Hackerspace meeting, but getting home in time to go into the city by 6 or 6:30 is pretty hard.

Yep, got plenty of excuses and whining. 


I joined some groups online in the meantime trying to connect and contact other people with similar interests. Check out Opennautics and moonmars. I found these places while frequenting other groups like the spaceGAMBIT one on facebook.

They are both similar projects like mine, except their level of lame is way lower than here at freespaceships. Way ahead of me in every sense. It was still nice to see that there is a lot more attempts out there to reach the same goal I set out to reach. It is a good sign.

Then there is another networking attempt of mine. A couple of weeks ago planetary resources reached out through their email updates to people who follow them to sign up to become an advocate of their efforts. I applied thinking it would be a good opportunity for me to meet others like myself. I also wanted to see the inner workings of an online collaboration of a large number of people. I got accepted to my surprise so I am also trying to keep up with the happenings within that community and I am trying to put down my 2cents worth of work.

That group is extremely hyped up at the moment because of this:

The group is "in charge" of trying to contact all sorts of media outlets or organisations that would be interested around the world. There are other tasks possibly which I am unsure of because I couldn't attend the webinar where it was all explained.

I thought I should share this since blogs are kind of like a media outlet. Though I doubt anyone apart from some bots will actually visit these links I post here. :)

I also made some observations and notes regarding my game, but those notes are extremely raw and lame. Too lame even for this blog.

That should be all for now.
