Do you know your neighbours?
We feel it is important to get to know our neighbours as much as our members. After all, we're part of a broader community. The ice storm that led to #darkTO in late Dec certainly taught some of us that our neighbours are important and vulnerable, and that even the simplest gesture of help or hope is welcome.
We've also started to show our love for our neighbours with a series of Neighbourhood Love posts on Facebook. You can scroll through our feed
and look for the posts that are tagged with #shoplocal. We've got some awesome neighbours!
Anyway, on to our newsletter. It's a short one this time, but in this issue:

Wanted: Community Manager
We're looking for a new community manager to join our team. It's a barter opportunity where we ask for one day per week in exchange to unlimited usage of our space.
It's perfect for someone who is looking for office space to run their business or study for school. You'd join our great team of community managers and enjoy all of the benefits of membership in our coworking space.
Contact us for details! And please tell your friends about this opportunity.
Hackernest Construct - Contest Alert!
Our friends at Hackernest are throwing a hackathon at the Ryerson DMZ. There's a $2500 grand prize and a heap of other awesome prizes to win.
Mind & Motion is all about spiffy next-generation interface devices like neural/gesture controls, augmented reality, wearables, tablets, and all the funky stuff you see in movies. You can bring/build any demo-able platform/device that (even remotely) fits the theme.
Students can get in for $10 with ID and it's still super affordable for regular hackers too. However, we're giving away two tickets!
Simply tweet this (but fill in the blank) by Feb 17 and two winners will be chosen at random and announced the next day.

over it is to just do it.

It is easy to believe we are each waves and forget we are also the ocean.
