Toward a Federation of East Bay Hackerspaces
Points of Unity
- Unity through diversity
Rock Paper Scissors Collective
Romy used to volunteer at the Rock Paper Scissors Collective down the street.
MaximillianKlein is now volunteering! so we have a direct connection
They are really nice but they have a lot of stuff on their plate. Don't be offended if they say they can't do something, or if they don't get back to you very quickly. They founded the Oakland Art Murmur and it is a non profit without much money, staffed by volunteers, with many demands made on them so things move slowly.
Hack the Gallery
Patrick runs Hack the Gallery in Berkeley.
Collectives & Hackerspaces in Foreign Countries
John Weeks, an American who went to Santa Cruz, helps run a Cambodian hackerspace and comic book workshop for Cambodian young professionals, street children and communities in Cambodia. It would be highly excellent to establish an online connection with this idealistic non-profit that does cool things.
They have 24 hour comic book days,computer workshops and graphic designs.
