Hi Collective Agency members,
Lots of good things have been happening. Here are photos, events, and updates.
* Photos for your enjoyment from January and early February: https://collectiveagency.co/2014/02/21/january-and-february-2014-photos/
* This Sunday 2-5pm is roller skating at Oaks Park for members/friends/family. New: Some of us will meet at Collective Agency at 1:15pm, bicycle down the Springwater Corridor trail, meet more people near OMSI at SE 4th and Division at 1:30pm, and arrive around 1:45pm. (It’s a beautiful half hour bike ride total.) Info & RSVP:
* This coming Wednesday from 9am to 5pm is the monthly open house (Last Wednesdays of each month, for anyone to come and work with us for the day, it’s a great day to invite friends and co-workers). Potluck lunch at 12pm and Lightning Talks from 2 to 2:30pm (Jason speaks Chinese and will talk about “Chinese 101″, Kenneth may talk about inspiring lessons he learned from the book The War of Art, and perhaps someone will lead yoga/stretching.) RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/184987988365717/
* Friday February 28th from 5:30 to 6:30pm, Resh will build a new set of mailslots. There’ll be some construction sounds from a conference room.
* For mid/late March, some members have requested a medium-difficulty multi-hour hike/walk in the forest somewhere; any ideas?
* Wifi: I’ve made a new wifi network name for the conference rooms and entry lounge: CollectiveConfRooms. The password is the same the one for the CollectiveAgency network: cooperativeworkplace (all lowercase, no spaces).
This provides the option to manually connect to the strongest wifi network signal wherever you are in the building. (If your laptop automatically connects to the strongest signal already, then nothing will be different for you, except please add the password “cooperativeworkplace” for the CollectiveConfRooms wifi network.)
I’ve posted more details here about wifi signal strength/reliability in case you’re interested: https://collectiveagency.co/collective-agency-wifi/ Ask me in person or email me if you have any questions.
