Hackerspaces and innovators
I really should post here more often. :)
I've been having quite a bit of fun founding and getting a hackerspace off the ground. We now have a better understanding why TinkerMill’s grown so fast in the last 6 months*.
Local Newspaper Story in the Longmont Time Call.
Apparently, a Hackerspace/Makerspace is something our town’s needed for awhile. :)
Average number of Patents per 10,000 people in the USA: 4
Average number of Patents per 10,000 people in Longmont: 45
You read that right, 45 vs. 4. More than an order of magnitude more than the rest of the country.
*50+ members, 3000SF space with lots of great tools and activities, more at: www.tinkermill.org.
