Here’s a “Someone Should” that could probably be done in an evening of work.
What is a “Someone Should” you ask? This is a call to action, a way of rallying YOU, ME, and Anyone else who can help. They are things that can improve the space. If you are looking for a way to help the space but just don’t know where to look, keep an eye out for “Someone Should” posts.
Someone Should Create QR codes for our equipment
We currently have an equipment wiki, but a lot of people don’t even know it exists. If you didn’t know it exists, I don’t blame you, here it is:
Every significant piece of equipment needs to have an entry in the wiki. Some tools have a lot of information, and some are either just stubs or completely missing. But it is difficult to know, walking through the space, what tools DO and DON’T have wikis, and it should be easy to pull them up quickly.
Therefore, at minimum for every stationary and bench top tool, we should design, print, and affix a QR code pointing to the tool wiki for that tool. This will promote retrieving and recording useful information about a tool.
If you do any work on this, please post back here and let us know what you did!
