Greetings fellow /g/entoomen
I am in the process of opening a HackerSpace in central Georgia, US.
Was wondering if there are any Anon's around this area that would be interested.
Also, what would you like to see in a HackerSpace? What would you like to do? Etc
Pretty much anything HackerSpace related goes.
as someone who currently partakes in the london hackerspace (largest membership base IIRC) my advice would be make payment easy,
make donations easy
work out a plan for acquiring any tools without funding, so that any actual money will be a godsend for the space, but not a necessity, try and find a place with low rent
There is no fucking way in hell that I would move to that shithole known as new York.
I am trying to open a HackerSpace in a place where there isn't one available. The closest one is about 1½ hrs away.
Just trying to open a place for like minded individuals to gather and learn from/with one another.
Also how would moving to new York be of any help?
and when I say make payment easy, I mean, like, to not require online payment
the london one I'm at requires me to contact my bank to do online banking shit and the only thing I use it for is paying for membership, utter shite desu
I have no input except don't give into calling it a 'Maker Space'; also promote a lot of software activities instead of just Maker stuff. If you can get a CTF going there that would be cool too, or a CTF team.
I will definitely take this into consideration. I will do my best to make the membership fees as simple and streamlined as possible.
No makerspace. It is a HackerSpace and will always be such. Yes, we will be making things, of course. Along with many other things. I collect old pay phones and other assorted hacker "relics/collectibles" for the members to play around with. Also collect old desktop and laptops. So we will have many projects.
I also have 2tb of wrdlst and rainbow tables. Just all sorts of things really.
I like the CTF Idea. I also have several networks set up to practice cracking. Routers, Rpi's, gas powered helicopters, and many other things. Too numerous to even begin to mention.
Also have many books, to have a library type section too.
Some people are just "scared" of the word 'hacker' because of the negative connotation the media has associated with the term.
The dumb-masses dont understand the difference between a hacker and a cracker. Therefore, they think hackers are all "bad guys".
