First Stockport Hackspace Meeting Announced

June 11, 2009

Following the discussions about the possibility of using Broadstone Mill in Stockport as a hackspace venue, the idea takes a step nearer to reality with the first hackspace meeting in Stockport.

The initial meeting will be just next-door to the mill at the Grey Horse Public House on Wednesday 24 June at 7pm.  Manchester people should note that although this is in the Stockport postcode area, it’s nearer the centre of Manchester than Didsbury is – you don’t have to venture outside the M60! 😉

The meeting will discuss the concept of hackspaces, our possible location (Broadstone Mill – the building next door) and much more (hopefully)!

If you’re intending to come, please show your interest on the Upcoming page for the event.

Liverpool Meeting

April 17, 2009

The best way to move towards getting a space is to start meeting. So let’s start meeting.

I know no date will work for everyone, so let’s just get going, and accommodate anyone who can’t make it later.

Starting Weds 22 April, I suggest a fortnightly meet-up at 7pm at FACT. We may try and meet in their media lab at some time, but we’ll start with the bar.

Bubblino, media star

Adrian McEwan will bring along Bubblino (as seen on BBC 😉 to the first meeting. Format will be informal discussion after a short intro on hackspaces.

One reason for choosing this coming Wednesday is that it follows straight on from the Small Steps to Sustainability meeting on Creative Learning – something that very much includes having fun in a hackerspace. I hope that some people will find themselves staying on from Small Steps for the Hackspace Meeting (or coming early to the HS meeting, to take part in Small Steps).

Note that Birmingham hackspace combine regular pub meetings with occasional weekend hackdays. Help us find a venue and we’ll be doing the same.

The meeting has an Upcoming page, if you’d like to sign up – but anyone interested is free to turn up on the night. See you there.
