We will have a boardmeeting on Thursday (20/3) mainly to discuss applying for membership of Collaboratory, a kinda makerspace in one 750m2 floor of Gotheburg Film Studios because the potential for having long term projects, access to the equipment and working together with the other members on interesting projects. We will meet at 18:00 CET (6 pm). Location is Vegagatan 1 as always.
TL;DR Hackerspaces are community-operated physical places,
where people can meet and work on their projects.
A hackerspace is a physical location where many different projects take place, and people from all walks of life meet to discuss ideas related to culture, technology and hacking. There are no restrictions on the types of topics discussed here, even if it's probably largely going to be electronics, software, old fax machines and robots that make everything possible. Robots building other robots or guerilla knitting, for example. It's pretty much up to the members (you!) hanging out here.
The purpose of Gothenburg Hackerspace is to create digital, cultural and social artifacts as well as to disseminate knowledge and promote openness and freedom. The Gothenburg Hackerspace laboratory also manufactures culture.
