Welcome to Our New Members

This is a new series of posts tagged under #welcomingcommittee where we welcome new Workshop 88 members to the hackerspace community.

WELCOME to our two newest members: Greg Williams and Dawn Kuczwara. Greg and Dawn are both from the tech industry. I haven’t met them yet, but other people from Workshop 88 have, and vouch for their goodness.

Greg, I’m told, herds nerds for a living (not in his words). He has a forge and two anvils in his garage. My knowledge with forges and anvils stops at World of Warcraft, so I’ll be schmoozing with Greg whenever we meet to learn how to thoroughly meld and sunder shit. Preferably things made out of mithril, but one can’t be picky.

Greg also gave our group a hammer, and I can only assume it looked something like this. Thanks for the hammer, Greg.

Dawn is the head of (and I beg pardon for the generality) a “Girls in Tech Group” in Chicago. I’m not sure what the name of it is, but it sounds really awesome, and I might even have a few people interested in joining this group of ladies in tech. Someone told me Dawn tore a hole into our floor the size of the sinkhole in Guatemala, but what I think they meant to say is that she helped with some serious work on our new workshop floor. Thanks, Dawn!

Both Greg AND Dawn have managed multiple sci-fi conventions, so I can only assume their knowledge of Dr. Who is more extensive than my own. This makes me feel insecure, and slightly threatened.

Welcome Greg and Dawn! Welcome to our crazy group at Workshop 88!!
