General consensus is it’s pronounced ‘AYCH ESS BEE ENN EE’.
Yes and no, we try to make sure our events are as open to the public as possible. Tuesday night meetings are open to anyone. In addition we have workshops and other open events that anyone can attend. If you’d like to know if people are at the space, or arrange a time to visit, your best bet is to post to the HSBNE Forum.
Thanks! Join in on some of the projects and events we have going on. Spread the word about HSBNE. That’s what we consider helpful support.
It doesn’t matter. Hackerspace is the preferred term of the ‘hackerspace movement’. Makerspace could be used when you don’t want to scare someone who doesn’t understand the true history of the word hacker.
No, that’s not what we do at all. We use the term hacker in the the historical ‘creative use of technology’ sense, not the ‘media boogeyman cybercriminal’ sense. We make stuff that’s ‘hacked together from different parts’.
Well thank you! We do already have quite a lot of equipment. Please check out our Donations page.
The hackerspace doors open to the public every Tuesday afternoon to night 5:00pm till late. If you're a member the hackerspace is open 24×7 via RFID cards, 365 days a year, including public holidays. In fact, especially public holidays.
