I am passionate about a lot of things. I used to list my interests as writing, making websites (with inline styles, BLAH!), snowboarding, and camping. I'd never have thought I'd add things like computers, hacking, electronics, or making. But, alas, such activities are now some of my favorite things to explore.
Hackerspaces are cool because they allow you to share your current knowledge, broaden your understandings, spread your excitement, and collaborate on the projects that result as a culmination of this process. I am happy to be a part of such an awesome thing.
