i know i talk about hackerspaces pretty frequently nowadays since i'm involved with pumping station: one, the chicago hackerspace. one of the most common questions i get is what a hackerspace actually is.
if you're curious, and you want a really good explanation of what a hackerspace is, what a hackerspace does, and some of the ideas and ethics behind the hackerspace movement, listen to this interview with Eric Michaud, a friend of mine and the president of pumping station: one.
this is the first in a series of videos called hello, a project of dave makes in which he interviews interesting people. i'll say he picked a very interesting one to start with.
