  1. Collaborative Play: Improving the World by Making Fun Stuff with Smart People Rose WhiteNYC Resistor rose@yarnivore.com

  2. Hacker Spaces! (Wait, what’s a hacker space?)

  3. The Noisebridge hacker space in the San Francisco Mission District, with someone hard at work. (credit: Susanne Forbes)

  4. Who is “A HACKER”? Maker, Geek, Crafter, Coder, Nerd, and Hacker – all are welcome

  5. In 2008 there was a huge increase in the number of hacker spaces, both in the US and worldwide

  6. Just the Facts • USians have been visiting German cons • December 2006 – 23C3 • August 2007 – DEFCON • HACKERS ON A PLANE • August 2007 – Chaos Communication Camp • December 2007 – 24C3 • January 2008 – THE RACE IS ON

  7. WHY?

  8. Again, some facts: • Bre Pettis and Nick Farr came home and spread the word • The tools they used were targeted and sophisticated – let’s have a look!

  9. It was the right moment Whether we live in cities or suburbs, many of us are frustrated (Chris Luebkeman mentioned the tension of density vs. sprawl) Alex Steffan asked: Why does everyone own a drill? Lane Becker and Thor Muller talked about pride of ownership vs. stewardship and the YMCA

  10. “Hacker spaces are like YMCAs for geeks and hackers” – Eric Michaud

  11. After a year, we’re just getting started
