One of the awesome things about building a hacker group is the community that has grown up around us. Our members are cool and all, but our community is what makes us great.

Unfortunately keeping a hackerspace as awesome as ours running comes with some real financial costs. Rent, power, insurance… it all adds up pretty quickly. Some of our community members have asked how they can help. Therefore, we’ve created a Friends of Resistor program.

So what do you get for being a Friend of Resistor? Access to an amazing community of hackers and makers via our Google Group, craft night, and other public events. But wait aren’t I already getting those for free? Well, yes. By becoming a Friend of Resistor you help make sure these events stay free, as well as give us the resources to host more open community events.

NYCRmoleskineFor just $13.37 a month, less than a new stick of PC133 RAM, you can help keep Resistor awesome. Plus, Friends of Resistor not only get the fuzzy feeling associated with supporting a good cause, you’ll also get a SWEET NYC Resistor Moleskine Notebook* to put all your exciting notes in. Because who doesn’t leave craft night brimming with ideas? Oh. Well, you would if you had somewhere to write them down!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today!

What if you don’t have a monthly surplus that l337 to spread around, but still want to contribute? Consider teaching a class! Teaching a class is fun and rewarding. And everyone has something they can talk about for an hour. If you’ve got a topic you’d like to share with inquiring minds, email us the details at contact@nycresistor.com.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

*To be picked up at craft night… we’re not mailing these babies, sorry! And yes, we totally stole this idea from NPR.

    $l3.37? That made my day ( that only shows how non-l337 I am).
