Dear hackers,

we’ll have a small dinner party organized the night before ShmooCon starts – on Feb. 05th, 2009 that is.
Everyone coming to ShmooCon or being around Washington DC that evening and interested in hackerspaces should join in!

Also, we’ll hold the next call-in from there (as we did from c-base – just a little more on time ;)
so please RSVP via over9000 (at) hackerspaces.org, let me know what you think, and if you’ll be able to make it!

Cheers,
/astera

Power To The People c-base.org auction. by Yarnivore

Still catching up on the backlog of awesome that happened during 25C3 we take a brief look back to the night of the 29th of December.

Hackers from around the world attended the Power To The People auction to help support the inspiration for many of the current hackerspaces in the world c-base with a looming refactored power bill.

If anyone needs a short piece of inspiration to either come to see c-base or create their own hackerspace, our very own Nick Farr opened up the auction with a very touching explanation of c-base and the short history he has had with the reconstruction crew.

So when all was said and done, the auction pulled in a spectacular 1761.60 EUR plus an extra 304.50 EUR from the foodhacking workshop down by Marc Powell (which is a post for another time) for the c-base!

Till next time,

-E.
