Every "hacker space" develops its own character and culture,it would be interesting to see what ours would look like in Uptown, we have some talented and creative people with all sorts of skills for sure.

Here is a link to the EveryBlock post which inspired this post:

And here is a link to a hacker space on Elston Av. that is up and running:

So please have a look and share any comments and/or ideas about bringing this idea to Uptown.

    Peoples Church is an awesome building, and great public transportation links. Here is a link to a picture of it...magnificent!

    I am going to cut-n-paste this over to the Ravenswood post....

    Merry Christmas!
