Reverse Space 6PM to 10PM 1-17-2013 – We need your help!

Reverse Space was the first MakerSpace in Northern Virginia and we need your help to be re-listed!

This week at Reverse Space we will be working finding solutions to our MakerSpace being delisted from the national list of MakerSpaces called (www.hackerspace.org), as well as work on our standard projects as usual. If anyone with I.T. Skills can help us, we would greatly appreciate it. Reverse Space still comes up on the search on this website, but we are no longer on the map or on the active space listing. Www.hackerspace.org is used for both Hacker Spaces and Maker Space nationwide. It is the only space the country and world really uses since they own the domain name.

There is only one other MakerSpace in Northern Virginia, if you don't want to be forced to only have one choice, or be forced to pay up to $1000 a year in membership dues, and believe in far competition and not monopolies, than please help us be re-listed! Because Reverse Space is funded by a host company, we have no membership fees. This is a business model that we hope to prove vs spaces spending tens of thousands on unneeded rent.

We are here for the long run and we are not going anywhere! It is however hard to run a MakerSpace and advance our hi-tech programs when we are under constant Cyber and Social Hacking attacks. The worst Social Hacking attack was the spreading of false information that Reverse Space was out of business when we were only closed for construction last year. This resulted is almost 95% of our members joining a new MakerSpace that opened in NOVA at the same time. This is only second to our $16,000 equipment disappearing with the money to purchase it as well. This was also a very successful Social Hacking operation I believe. This is only the tip of the iceberg. Someday this will change. It's not a big deal really, at least not for myself since I'm quite use to this world which the average person knows nothing about (Cyber & Hacker Community). This is just what the modern MakerSpace (HackerSpace) as to deal with.

Fear not people! We are here for the long-run and we are not going anywhere. Someday MakerSpace will work together for a better country and world, but only with your help and hard work and this be achieved.

    Put down "No", but it really depends on if we get snow or not.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
