Hi Nicolas,

Did you get any feedback from about offering web development classes?  It's
a great idea.  Did you know that other organizations offer web development
classes in Davis?  How would yours be different?  Drupal, Joomla,
WordPress, html, whatever?  DCN offers SimpleSite, CSS and html.   Would
you want to offer those classes in the DMS room or would you need a
classroom with/without computers?

This brings back the question about what DMS is and how it could partner
with the community.  I am sure there are many people in the community who
would welcome this resource.  What else would they need to know?  Would we
want to distribute this information through other channels, i.e. Davis
Community Network, Explorit, Davis Senior Center, Odd Felllows, etc.?

Incidentally, did anyone who attended the Maker Faire this weekend speak
with other Hackerspace folks about how they service their community and how
they structure their organizations?  I did.  They saw a lot of benefit from
partnering with existing non-profits but they also had other ideas and
do-over wishes.
