What is a MakerSpace?
The GJMakerSpace is a location where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital or electronic art (but also in many other realms) can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. MakerSpaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
Many MakerSpaces participate in the use and development of free software, open hardware, and alternative media. They are often physically located in infoshops, social centers, adult education centers, or on university campuses, but may relocate to industrial or warehouse space when they need more room.
How Can I Help?
What we need right now is for you to help spread the word about the Grand Junction Hackerspace Project. Tell your friends and neighbors. And then come to the meetings.
