We’ve been ‘incubating’ projects over on the Mach 30 Drawing Board because honestly, there are waaay too many good ideas out there and too few of us on the Mach 30 board. One of these ideas, the Book Club, was recently brought to life during a weekly hangout.
The group decided that they wanted to kick off this new project by reading the book X-teams: how to build teams that lead, innovate and succeed. So here we go! There’s a ton of great background on the drawing board page for the Mach 30 Book Club idea. I’d suggest taking a quick glance through that so you know what to expect.
We’ll start by discussing the Introduction to the book on Monday, November 26th. If you want to be part of the discussion you can add comments to this blog post, even if you don’t have an account. If you click in the “Leave a Reply” box below you’ll see options to post as your Twitter and Facebook logins too. We’re really looking forward to getting started with this book, and we hope you’ll join us. If you’re a part of teams in any way, this will be a great discussion.
So, grab a copy of the book, a comfy chair, a hot or cold beverage of your choice, and lets get started!
Mach 30 board members J. Simmons and Greg Moran sit down to talk about the role of open hardware in the future of spaceflight. We were pleased to meet Michael at the Open Source Hardware Summit in New York, and excited that he was interested in getting to know more about what we have going on at Mach 30.
Here’s a set of pictures from my trip to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to watch the Space Shuttle Atlantis launch on mission STS-135, the final flight of the NASA shuttle fleet. We at Mach 30 are working to expedite the return of human space access here in the US. If you want to make sure that we continue to pursue safe, sustainable, routine and reliable access to space, donate now, like us on Facebook, or sign up for the newsletter… Then enjoy my photos!
