We would like to send out a Thanks to Michelle Martinez & Metromode for a nice article about hacking and hackerspaces. Michelle explains the social side of hackerspaces as well as the grander movement of spaces being built around the country.
There are some great inserts from many different individuals in the scene including i3 Detroit, Bilal Ghalib from All Hands Active, Eric Michaud from Pumping Station: One, Dale Dougherty from Make, Jeff Sturges and Bethany Shorb from the up and coming hackerspace in Detroit.
You can find a link to the the article here.
Found myself in Pittsburgh for a few business meetings and wanted to visit our friends to the East, Hack Pittsburgh.
They have a very cool space with lots of style. I am quite jealous of a number of their tools especially their TIG welder. But I am most jealous of their ceiling cat.
Thanks to Matt and and the team for hosting me and the delicious pizza. The bristle bot challenge is still on and we are waiting for the day we race.

Amazing, amazing, amazing, that’s all we can say. We have 13 days left and we are 60% funded on Kickstarter. Thank you so much for your help. Your support is why we do what we do. We are almost at our goal. If you haven’t pledged to make i3Detroit v2.0 amazing yet, you still have time to do it. So do it. Right now. Seriously. I am talking to you!
Just wanted to share a picture set with you of our new facility. It has been posted once, but just can’t help but show it off like a newborn baby. We are working with the city of Ferndale and will hopefully have our C of O in the next couple of days. Then it is on to painting, building and moving.
We spent this past weekend boxing everything up at the old space. It was a bit sad and nostalgic. But like our insightful Director at Large, Nick Britsky said “i3 Detroit is in here” (while pointing to his heart). And, yeah, he is right.
Thanks again and enjoy the pics.
Just a quick glance at the schedule:
Monday: Nothing scheduled yet. Come hang out if the space is open!
Tuesday: Electronics meetup, no RSVP required. Theme: Soldering iron clinic — tip tinning, cleaners and holders, the role of flux in the soldering process. May also get into the other gear on the bench. I’ll try really hard to have the doors open by 7; somewhat earlier is likely. BYOSI if you want specific advice!
Thursday: Metal Machining class part 2.
Friday: The monthly Unusual Musical Instrument Jam Session, same time as PS:One does theirs. Bring noisy stuff! Also, FIRST competition begins in Ann Arbor. Also, new-member orientation — if you’ve been wanting to join, get here!
Sunday: Electronics class, piezo noisemakers. 2-4pm.
Not only is the space planning a hackathon but there will also be a Didgeridoo class and a Cacophony Club meeting. While we are not 100% sure what Cacophony club is, we know it is loud, noisy and full of circuity musical goodness.
These events are open to the public and we hope to see everyone there. For more information check out their site at http://pumpingstationone.org/.
