    Toorcamp is a hacker/maker conference and camp, the next one is coming up August 8th through the 12th and takes place on the Northern Washington coast in Neah Bay.

  • Mitch Altman is no longer welcome in Canada? on by maltman23, [Hackerspaces] Hatena Bookmark

    Ever been kicked out of a country before? Well, it sucks. I’m in the middle of my Hackers On A Train Workshop Tour, giving my popular Learn-to-Solder and Arduino-For-Total-Newbies workshops at 22 hackerspaces near Amtrak stations, and going to 4 conferences, over a 53 days. All by Amtrak. That was the plan, anyhow. I was […]

  • Trip to Cairo, Egypt on by maltman23, [Hackerspaces] Hatena Bookmark

    I’m in Cairo.  The main reason for this trip was to set up a 3-day hackerspace at Maker Faire Africa, which is in Cairo this year.  Exciting time to be here!  Lots of high hopes since the “Freedom Revolution”.  Plus lots of attempts by the still-ruling-military at divide-and-rule. Our trip was funded by generous donations […]

  • Wall-O-Tubes v1 on by Rubin Starset, [Create,General,Hackerspaces] Hatena Bookmark

    The internet is a hard problem, not really solved yet. Getting the internet into your hacker space is another hard problem. Thirdly making it easy for folks to diagnose their (own) network problems without taking down the internet for others or killing other network hardware is also hard. At Noisebridge we've got a network rack […]

  • NYC Resistor visit on by Rubin Starset, [Hackerspaces] Hatena Bookmark

    Rachel sez: I visited NYC Resistor this past weekend.  They’ve got a 5th floor space in Brooklyn, maybe a little bigger than ours, with lovely light.  I posted some pics on the Noisebridge wiki, and here’s a few more: They gave us a present which I will post pictures of as soon as I’ve shown […]
