Machine Project in Los Angeles is a National Treasure. It's a combination gallery space, hacker space, and performance center. It has been operating for about a decade.

Attended a 100W light bulb oven bake off. Held Maker Faire auditions. Hosted a Boing Boing Meet Up. Talked about my whittling projects.
