November was a big month for us – in that it was our busiest month in-person, on-site, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown back in March 2020. It was also a HUGE month for us on Twitter with one of our most popular tweets yet, thanks to our friends at the Internet Archive retweeting us. If you don’t know the Internet Archive you should head there right now and find out!
If you've used @internetarchive in the past, consider sharing your story with IA that may aide them in a lawsuit from @HachetteUS & other corporate publishers looking to restrict access to knowledge - even during a global pandemic. (Shame!)— QC Makerspace (@qcmakerspace) November 4, 2021

The impact of this tweet is that it’s about a survey of users; it’s also about corporate overreach; and shame on them for restricting the public’s access to knowledge (during a global pandemic no less!).
Our second most popular tweet this month can’t be read enough: a breakdown of the big 3 popular slicers Cura, PrusaSlicer, and Simplify3D.
