Another Fab Lab Tulsa news story!

This clip from KTUL Channel 8 in Tulsa.  I'm pretty proud of this one because it's the first time our new executive director, Nathan Pritchett, spoke on TV on our behalf.  Great job Nathan!

Awesome Youtube clip!

Kudos to Stevie and his team with Explore Tulsa TV!  They came into the lab on Tuesday and shot a great short piece which has now been added to the website.  It's probably the best video piece we've seen of Fab Lab Tulsa EVER.  Thank you!

Building a head of steam!

This will be a quick post but I wanted to make note of a couple of important developments recently with Fab Lab Tulsa.

First, our membership numbers are growing at a fantastic pace.  Through 4 months (Sept-Dec) in 2011 we added 72 members.  Through the first 6 weeks of 2012 we've already added 55 members...we are on pace to have 124 members in 4 months!  Plus we've added another corporate member, US Highland.  We are very excited about these developments, and are SO grateful to our supporters.

Second, I got a great note today from a follower of this blog, Ms. Cole, about some fanstastic TED talks...20 essential TED talks for future leaders.  I have seen a few of these talks myself and they are highly recommended.  I am thrilled to have this feedback and look forward to hearing from more of our readers.

Third, I want to introduce our first Executive Director, Nathan Pritchett.  He comes to us from the for-profit world with many many great ideas, and enthusiasm for Fab Lab Tulsa.  If you haven't met him yet, I encourage you to drop by the lab and welcome him.

I hope to have more good news in the days to come.
