What is a “Hacker Space”?
Categories: Uncategorized


If you read my post about the philosophy of hacking and hacktivism, then lets go a step further: Hackerspaces. I’ll be brief. Hackerspaces are places filled with the tools, materials, and environment to crafts, hack, build, and tinker. They are part of a movement known as co-working. You see, as more and more jobs can be done from home, people are finding that never leaving the house is damaging socially and mentally. Co-working space are places, often houses, where such individuals work side by side, giving them distinct home/work environments as well as new friends and maybe even a community garden.

Hackerspaces are similar, but focus on maker-type activities and skill sharing. Often times, they look like the intersection of an MIT lab and Merlin’s tower.

If you’re a Tufts student, you have two great options: the Tufts Crafts Center and Somerville Sprout.
