The following is a complete verbatim ripoff from the official MAKE Blog but I wanted this message to get out. Planning spaces like this is a major headache and I sympathize with the organizers. Love the logo, by the way. My advice? Get a laser engraver/cutter ASAP.
Good news for those in Chicagoland! Planning is underway to form Workshop 88, a hackerspace in the west suburbs of Chicago. Here's your chance to get in on the ground floor!We're currently in the planning stage, and we're looking for interested people in the area to help us get started. We're holding bi-weekly meetings Mondays at 6:30 until we're ready to rent some space and move in. The first meeting is this Monday, November 23, at the Boilerhouse Cafe, on the campus of North Central College in Naperville (29 N Loomis St Naperville, IL 60540).
Some of the things we'll be discussing:
- Legal structure of the hackerspace
- Membership structure and guidelines
- Work that still needs to be done to build out our online presence
- Current projects

It sounds like the planning session for the upcoming Chicago-area "Workshop 88" hacker space went really well last night. Fifteen attendees is merely the beginning! Kudos and keep us informed. I hope you folks can get some sweet projects under your belt and head down to the Maker Faire for some show n' tell.
