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!
