Pumping Station: One - A Hacker Space in progress.

What We Do

Pumping Station: One, NFP is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and scientific purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (or the corresponding section of any future United States Internal Revenue law). Its mission is to foster a collaborative environment wherein people can explore and create intersections between technology, science, art, and culture.

This is the statement of purpose as outlined in our Bylaws

What We Are Planning

Now planning space design! WorkPlan

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 Cowtown Computer Congress, NYC Resistor, NoiseBridge, HACDC, and other groups around the country.

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!

See what kind of stuff we are looking for in the wishlist.

Join Us!

Membership costs $50 per month. You can bring a check or cash to one of our Meetings, or pay online on our Membership Page.

Membership will give you 24/7 access to our hackerspace. It also gives you the right to vote on the decisions that the organization makes, the right to run for office in the election on January 27, and the opportunity to help us raise the cash reserves necessary to keep us in our space and fund future activity!

If you can afford to give more than the $50 monthly fee, we are also collecting donations. These, like the membership fees, will go toward raising the cash reserves that we need to move into a space.

Where We Are Meeting

We meet every Tuesday at 3354 N. Elston at 7pm. See Meetings for more information.

We'd love to see you there, we're always looking for interesting people.

What to Expect

Anything. Bring a project, laptop or otherwise. Meetings are informal yet educational.

We have also just put up a mailing list. So mosey on over to http://groups.google.com/group/pumping-station-one-public and sign up.
