Today, the core members of the NYC Resistor group put down a good chunk of money on a space in Downtown Brooklyn. It turns out it was the first space that Dave found! – Link
It will be a space for monthly public meetups and much hacking.
It started with George, Peter and I at Chaos Computer Club Cologne. We had just been to the Chaos Communications Camp and were on a tour of hacker spaces in Europe when we decided that NYC needed a place for hackers to meet and share ideas and make things. We sat down and put together a good chunk of infrastructure and now, five months later, we have formed a strong core group and found a space and we start moving in later this month at 397 Bridge Street.
The last month has been quiet on the site while the core group has been busy behind the scenes developing infrastructure, starting an LLC to make it happen legally, and doing lots of planning.
Now that we have a space, we have a lot more hard work ahead of us, but there is no going back now! Stay tuned!
