Had our first Spindletop meeting this Saturday. Many local supporters turned out to discuss their ideas and concerns. Everything was very positive, people seem to be excited about our thoughts and Lucas and I are excited about implementing their ideas (and they had some great ones.

Events are unfolding very quickly and it's going to be a challenge to get things going, but with the kind of support that we've been receiving from the free software community - this is going to happen, it already is.

We're concentrating on the website first and foremost in our effort to build a base community that can help in every aspect from voting on ideas, to programming, to speaking on Spindletop's behalf (eventually). We're going to have a fully automated community that will not only be able to express their opinions but also actively participate in the construction of the first GNU/Linux hardware co-operative of its kind.
