Wow! What an amazing NOMCON we’ve had so far. We started Day 1 off with a

fantastic Keynote by Dr. Leah Hanes from Two Bit Circus Foundation, celebrated
the amazing Infy Maker Award recipients, and launched into a full day of incredible
panels, roundtables, workshops, spark sessions and fireside chats. We finished our
incredible programming for the day with a discussion of our Core Principles and how
maker organizations can begin the important work of putting them into action. And of
course, we still had a Happy Hour - our cocktail hour was a nice break to see each
other’s faces, enjoy some fun conversations (what are YOU binge watching these
days?), and to experience a little of the maker love that we all feel during in-person
NOMCON.
But, as with any event, there were also some bumps in the road - and yesterday,
that was the magical mystery of the disappearing Zoom links. In true Scooby Doo
fashion, we figured out the culprit, and we are making sure we don’t have a repeat
of that technical glitch for the remainder of our conference. We are sorry for any
inconvenience for our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors. We are
grateful to all of you who attended yesterday - for your patience, grace, and
kindness during the technical issues, and for sticking with us in spite of them. And in
true maker fashion, many of you jumped in as last minute volunteers (with joy!),
because, well, that’s what we, as a maker community do (we fix things!) - for that,
we are especially grateful.
 
Now who’s excited for Day 2?
We are! Today’s Keynote comes from Dr. Paul Bunje from Conservation X Labs,
who will speak to us about "Empowering Everyone to End the Sixth Mass
Extinction". Don’t go the way of the dinosaurs - join us! That will be followed by even
more exciting programming including some special sessions from the Department of
Energy about their new Geothermal Prize, including how innovative uses of additive
manufacturing in geothermal could save the day! And of course, we’ll have another
cocktail hour with breakouts and fun topics to discuss (and possibly games!).
Finally, don’t forget to visit our virtual exhibit booths from XPrize, MatterHackers and
ShopBot as well as our Film Screening of Me and My Robot. There is a lot of great
information, live session info and contests, and an absolutely great movie for you to
view.
MatterHackers will be having a daily giveaway drawing for attendees that add
the MatterHatter booth to their schedule. Today’s (Thursday’s) giveaway is
a $100 MatterHackers Gift Card! Check out their booth for more
information!
XPRIZE will have a live session on Friday at 2pm ET, check out their
booth!
Attend a Film Screening at your leisure! “Me and My Robot” will be
available online every day during the conference free for all attendees. Check
out the session pinned to your schedule for link and details. Also, Alex Crooks
will be giving a presentation about the film and Q&A on Friday at 3pm Eastern
time.
Can’t wait to see you in the Zoomiverse today at NOMCON 2020!
Warmest regards,
Dorothy

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
