We want to create a collaborative environment for people to explore the intersections between technology, art and culture.  We feel the best way to do this is to establish a hacker space similar to others such as the [http://www.cowtowncomputercongress.org/ Cowtown Computer Congress], [http://www.nycresistor.com/ NYC Resistor], [https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/NoiseBridge NoiseBridge], [http://hacdc.org/  HACDC], and other groups around the country.

== About PS:One ==
  
We also hope to provide a community resource by hosting classes on electronics, programming, crafts, and any other skill that members or others are willing to provide. We want to make learning and creating fun!
