On Saturday, September 20th, FamiLAB members Jamie Szafran and David Sikes went to the Intertel Southeast Region’s Annual General Assembly (held this year in Orlando) to give a talk about hackerspaces. The talk covered hackerspaces in general (definitions, characteristics, examples, history, etc.), Maker culture/the Maker movement, FamiLAB history (“the genesis of a hackerspace”), and Maker education. The talk, planned for an hour, lasted an hour and a half and spawned continued conversation with Intertel members for a further hour and a half.
FamiLAB member and Central Florida Raspberry Pi User Group organizer Mac Rutan, who also spoke, grabbed these photos after his talk.
FamiLAB thanks the Southeast Region of Intertel for the invitation and hopes to see some of its members at the lab soon!
