Pumping Station: One is a hackerspace located here in Chicago.  Part of a growing movement of makerspaces and tech labs, the defining characteristic of a hackerspace isn’t the stuff in it, it’s the community and culture that create it.  Simply put, it’s a collaborative community-run workshop where the membership gets to decide the tools, resources, and whatever else is available.  PS1 is 250+ individuals committed to the open pursuit of knowledge, as well as the sharing of ideas and resources.

What community are you part of, and why?  
I’d love to know!

  1. and Pumping Station is alot of fun!

    1. I agree! I have lots of fun there. šŸ™‚

  2. Very cool. That would definitely not be my realm of geekdom, but I do love my music, writing and theater groups. I like hanging with people who have no qualms bursting into song or improvisational acts out of the blue.

    1. I agree! I host my Writer Zen Garden group at PS1, so we have our share of artistic and theater types. One of our members recently built a harp. šŸ™‚ It’s a crazy, creative place. šŸ™‚

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment. I appreciate it. Happy blogging!
