the amsterdam hackspace is in gestation and almost at full term.
there was a small group who went to CCC camp, who on their return decided to setup a small group with the aim to create a hackerspace. i've been involved and egging them on ever since i arrived
we will very shortly have a legal entity. and we're a hairs width from having a space in a building which has been converted to provide artists studio/workspaces, on the cheap.l i think its some government scheme. the name for our hackerspace is techinc. a wiki is up but incomplete. things are kinda rushed and we have little time to polish things but we're coming along nicely.
we're hoping to announce ourselves at ccc in berlin this december. we will have a 'pre launch' party on fri 13th jan to announce ourselves to amsterdam and all the hackers/creatives that are here (and there are many. it amazes me they dont already have a hackspace).
i'll spam the list with more info once the event location/agenda is confirmed. it will be lightning talks, followed by a social event with some level of hackery
we will also having a launch party. i hope some LHS'ers can attend!
