From their site:
This is a group formed to discuss the formation of a hackerspace in the triangle. Everyone is welcome to come to our meetings and get involved at the ground level.
Our goal is to form a hackerspace that is representative of an interdisciplinary community for learning, teaching, and creating. Instead of starting with a defined range of projects or programming, we want to create a hackerspace that is driven by its members. Hackerspaces, at any stage of their development, promote people to be hackers in the broadest sense: to learn all they can about the fields that interest them, explore their bounds, and create new and interesting ways to apply that knowledge. Here is what you need to know:
- EVERYONE is welcome. No exceptions.
- A hackerspace will be whatever its members and the community make it. That's why YOU should get involved. The more diverse, the better.
- We are leaning towards a member-driven community with sponsorship opportunities for local businesses
- The proposed location is Downtown Durham. The location is currently flexible.
