NYC Resistor: DIY Hackers Doing Awesome Things 134

HansonMB writes "Founded by a handful of friends who wanted a place to tinker with electronics and meet like-minded hackers for good, NYC Resistor has blossomed into one of the country's most influential hackerspaces. On any given Thursday night, their cozy, cluttered loft workshop is crawling with a diverse crowd of hardcore tinkerers and curious newcomers. Throwing some caution and many user warranties to the wind, they're there to build, refine, break and share everything from toy robots to intricate paper sculpture to open source musical instruments."

    I used to run one of the UK's most popular hackerspaces up until last year when the popularity of goat based experimentation made it quite clear that a goat-space would be a far more rewarding and popular event. Now my goatspace events attract a crowd twice as large, and the advances made in goat technology are fantastic. The only problem is that our webserver keeps getting hacked, but that is probably because it runs on Windows....

    I think you need a web cam to provide security for your webserver. Then you could call it goat-see or maybe goatse for short. I've heard that is a name with a long and glorious reputation.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
