Gizmo Dojo Kickstarter — SUCCESS

Greetings hackers!

Our fellow hackers in Broomfield, CO (near Denver) are looking to finally get their hackerspace off the ground and into a physical space. They’re using kickstarter to get themselves out of one of the officer’s garage, and into a space of their own.

Check out their Kickstarter here and consider throwing them some dosh!

Hackerspaces unite!

EDIT: They successfully raised $18,669, which exceeded their original goal, but fell short of their first stretch goal.

Tesla Science Center Memorial Brick

A few years back, I posted a link to the Tesla Science Center‘s fundraiser campaign to purchase the grounds of the Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory to preserve it and turn it into a museum. A campaign which worked, and a campaign which attracted the attention of Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk.

Well, things have been going swimmingly for the TSC folks, and they got the land, they’ve cleaned it up, and they’ve started the renovations. Now they’re raising money by selling memorial bricks for the visitor’s center and we have our opportunity to get our name engraved in history.

Quelab member Jeremy has started raising money internally to place OUR name on one of those bricks. If you’re interested in contributing, check out the thread on our members email list, or see him at the potluck this coming Sunday. If we raise enough money for us, we can send that money on to the TSC.

Also, Tesla for those who don’t know him (tw:language)
