Do you know what a Hacker Space is? Most simply I see it as a place where people come together to collaborate on tech projects. Learn more about the effort with Jeff Myer who is one of the people starting one right her in CT.
Specifically he will be talking about thier efforts to empower everyone to take advantage of today's high technology for utility and personal expression without a degree in Engineering.
I know they have been working on cool projects like a 3d printer and hobby with one of my favorite items the Arduino microprocessor board.
Jeff also sent us this more detailed description of the space:
Our Mission is to provide a physical location where community members interested in technology can gather to collaborate on projects both physical and conceptual. To provide infrastructure to the community in the form of education, tools and equipment that will allow members to transcend from being interested in technology to implementing technology in actual physical manifestations. To build a community that fosters respect for individaul creativity, provides inspiration and facilitates the futherance of technology in all forms
