   Projects
   Ryan - A friend John has DIY Bio bio-tech lab equipment he is willing to share with other folks / startup companies.
   Perhaps there can be some sort of collaboration with Sudo Room.
   John is interested in maintaining control of the equipment, so it's likely they will use a "keyholder" system for public access--a key holder must be present.
   Marina - Art Murmur
   Tracy couldn't make it tonight
   Live clothes-hacking with conductive thread (you can run electricity through that shit).
   Bring your sewing machines!
   Email the list if you're interested / HYPED!
   Eddan is starting a Dynamic Association of Displayed Art
   This gets a klout score of "boom"
   Anthony - Insulin Pump and Bioreactor
   Great milestone for DIY Bio community -- most in-demand drug he knows of
   Can be made fairly easily based on initial speculations.
   Part of class of production methods that would generalize well to other proteins (very extensible)
   In a nut-shell - a physical device to purify insulin
