Bergo's visit to Nashville Hacker Consortium

Discussions on anything related to the evolving idea of Saskatoon's first "makerspace". What is a makerspace to you? What should it be called? What's the charter?

Bergo's visit to Nashville Hacker Consortium

Postby Bergo » Wed Jan 18, 2012 1:17 pm

a few of you may know that I was away on a business trip to the nashville area for the first half of Jan. While down there I met up with the guys from the local hackerspace there - Nashville's Hacker Consoritum (http://www.hackerconsortium.com)

A few pictures:

There are more pics on their website, I should have taken more, I will next time. They've also got a great server room, and a b ay dor in the back large enough to get vehicles in the space. Some of the larger tools they have in the space are a pair of welders, full mechanics toolchests, large fromat printers and vinyl cutters, and a laser printer.

Super friendly bunch, and i'll certinaly be going back next time I'm in the area. One of their members (Mudflap) gave me a "hackers passport" which was originally designed by Mitch altman of noisebridge hackerspace. They also staped it with their HC official stamp. It's a really cool idea to encourage visiting other hackerspaces, and I think we should get a stamp of our own, and print out some Hacker Passports!
