    I was able to join the NY meet up in September, and it was great meeting all the Shapies up there. So I'd like to do something like that down here in the mid-Atlantic. I've talked to Baltimore (Todd Blatt, not the city itself) and he's interested in joining in, so I was wondering if anyone else in the area would be interested. Join in the discussion and maybe we can work out a time and a place.

    cool initiative! Once you've set a date and place be sure to shoot Ana or me a message and we'll announce it on the blog and our Meetup page as well.

    There are a couple Towson University students that I know of who'd be interested. Another member of the Baltimore Node <a href="http://www.baltimorenode.org" target="_blank"></a> named Marty, who is also an employee of MakerBot would be interested too. The Node is across the street from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and I'm sure there are MICA students who'd be interested.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm one of the Towson University students and I am definitely interested. I've also got at least two more ladies who would come.

    Sweet! With all the holiday affair coming up, let aim for early next year. Do you Baltimore area people have a place in mind?

    So does this place work for everyone? (I'm sure it won't for everyone, but hopefully the majority) That's at 120 West North Ave in Baltimore.

    Now a date. Perhaps we should meet on a Thursday so that we can also check out the goings on at the node?

    Just throwing a date out there. How about January 12th? I could probably get there around 6:30, but if need be I could get some time off to get there earlier.

    It's an even longer swim than you thought ;)
