DorkbotPDX has crawled out of the womb and is in the now permanent (revolutionary) process of defining itself. We are a community of creative types who enjoy experimenting, finding art in technology and pushing the limits of whatever is in front of us. We meet on an regular, informal basis every other week, but you can find out more on our meetings page. We occasionally hold larger events, so sign up for the mailing lists to find out what’s going on. We welcome you to join us at our gatherings and to bring something interesting to view or ponder. Hands-on items (electrical, mechanical, digital, aural, visual, or other) are highly encouraged! Show and tell warrants mega ultra bonus points! If nothing else, just show up and tell us what you’re interested in — chances are good you’ll find some creative feedback or meet someone with similar ideas.
Located on the corner of 50th and Hawthorne, in the Elks Parking lot the other day was Fish on Wheels covered here by the Portland Monthly blog. Fish on Wheels is part of the Flying Fish Company and after reading about it I am wondering why is it I didn’t just go over and talk to the guy and get some great fish. Some days you just have to wonder what is going on up the stack.
