David Weekly says, "Hacker Dojo is doing a kickstarter. We have $250k we have to raise in the next few months to get the building brought up to code so we can have classes again." I visited Hacker Dojo a few years ago when they first opened, and I witnessed the wonderful community and projects that emerged. They're the real deal. More about the fundraising effort here.

    My last name is Hacker and because there’s so much stuff with that word on it, it’s easy to find neat stuff with my name on it. I try to avoid collecting stuff I don’t need but my dad has a pretty sizable collection of hacker stuff (he isn’t so much now, but was a minor computer geek in the 80′s and early 90′s which is largely why I’m a computer geek now – I grew up with it), and father’s day/christmas presents are a no-brainer for me.

    I picked up some Hacker Dojo stickers from the Maker Faire last year. They had a sparse booth but seemed pretty cool, and their place seemed a lot more inviting and genuinely useful than some of the other hacker/maker spaces around. Alas, I don’t live in the bay area.

    The first official MadLab event was part of Hacker Dojo’s worldwide Augmented Reality camp! Those guys put together some great stuff. If you’re in the area, drop by and help them out!
