Sudo Room is an open, non-hierarchical, collaborative community of humans, including tech developers, citizen scientists, activists, artists--and all combinations in between and beyond!--who are interested in and working towards social change. Our goal is to create the first inclusive, dedicated hackerspace in downtown Oakland, to share ideas and projects in citizen science, digital citizenship and literacy, environmental sustainability, community engagement, and self-government.
Sudo Room is committed to access, empowerment, transparency, and public/social good. Sudoers have a great diversity of interests and we emphasize respect and solidarity among ourselves and with others.

Current Critical Momentum

We are now:

We made headway with:

Next Steps

As per discussions and polling, we are moving toward these steps:

  • August 10th - Get bank account
  • August 24th - Expand membership, get a sense of paying members
  • August 31st - Get first payment
  • September 3rd - Rent for Space


Needs to be Updated


  • To found a creative community hacker space in the East Bay, specifically in Oakland, CA.
  • Establish a platform and space committed to:
    • Citizen science
    • Democratic Culture
    • Access to Knowledge
    • Freedom to Connect
    • Non-technical (humanities, social science, the environment/ environmental justice, arts, crafts, all the squishy stuff!) and technical knowledge (including transitions and bridges between the two) --
      • the useful arts & sciences?
      • information, data, knowledge, wisdom?
      • memes, genes, bits, and atoms?
      • Non-technical knowledge includes but is not limited to expertise in fields or disciplines that can be largely independent of technology. Also includes non-academic realms of knowledge.
    • Digital/Online Citizenship - Netizen Rights & Freedoms
    • Doing stuff to make our community openly accessible.
      ...to do something more with digital and network technology
    • Environmental sustainability
    • Education and mentorship
    • Community engagement
    • Public access
  • To become a center for active hacking projects but also a destination where speakers on the areas listed above may be hosted, and where folks may go for skill sharing classes

For examples, check out our list of potential projects or read about ones we've shared on our website.



  • Read (and contribute to) our list of projects to see (and inform) what kinds of projects we will be able to do in this space! You can also see projects we've featured on our website.
