I’m running for the board.
About me This year I have been Freeside’s treasurer.
I do a lot of keycard stuff and day to day stuff like getting our fire extinguishers inspected.
I run the programming team, and try to be active in the brainiacs group.
I also automated a number of Freeside’s systems like the gatecode, checking dues, and our meetup overlapping event warning system.
Back in college I created a hackerspace like club/lab and ran it for two years.
What I think could be improved at freeside I want to grow the membership and get more grants into freeside.
This would let us sponsor more projects and people and tools.
I would love freeside to be the place people know because they saw some awesome project of ours.
It seems like we have been making fewer awesome things recently.
How I want to Improve freeside I’d like to try a group robotics project meetup structured like brainiacs but with shorter term projects. I think this would generate a lot of awesome visible things for freeside.
I will be continuing to automate away some of the tedium in running freeside.
I would like to help Tom bring in more noble causes and grants.
Cheers, Nathan Burnham
