Crash Space
"Crash Space is a hackerspace in Los Angeles, and is part of the growing global hackerspace movement. We are a collection of hackers, programmers, builders, makers, artists and people who generally like to break things and see what new things we can build with the pieces. We meet regularly at our physical location in Culver City.

Crash Space is generally open to members only, with the exception of regularly scheduled classes and occasional events. Our Mailing List is open to anyone and we invite you to join and say Hi. You can also check out our flickr group to see what we are up to."

"TechShop is a 33,000 square foot membership based workshop that provides members with any skill level to have access to tools and equipment, instruction, and a creative and supportive community of like minded people so you can build the things you have always wanted to make.

TechShop is perfect for inventors, "makers", hackers, tinkerers, artists, roboteers, families, entrepreneurs, youth groups, FIRST robotic teams, crackpots, arts and crafts enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to be able to make things that they dream up but don't have the tools, space or skills."

DIY Freaks Flock to 'Hacker Spaces' Worldwide | Gadget Lab from
"There are now 96 known active hacker spaces worldwide, with 29 in the United States, according to Another 27 U.S. spaces are in the planning or building stage. Located in rented studios, lofts or semi-commercial spaces, hacker spaces tend to be loosely organized, governed by consensus, and infused with an almost utopian spirit of cooperation and sharing. "It's almost a Fight Club for nerds," says Nick Bilton of his hacker space, NYC Resistor in Brooklyn, New York. Bilton is an editor in The New York Times R&D lab and a board member of NYC Resistor. Bilton says NYC Resistor has attracted "a pretty wide variety of people, but definitely all geeks. Not Dungeons & Dragons–type geeks, but more professional, working-type geeks.""

Collaborative Play: Improving the World by Making Fun Stuff with Smart People: ETech 2009
"By building non-traditional communities in cities where it is notoriously difficult to build any community, hackers are demonstrating the future of social organization. It’s fun! While we secretly figure out how to make our lives in the city more functional and satisfying, we learn and share and make things. We play. Everyone can play. This talk is your invitation!"

Twin Cities Makers Find a Home? | Geekdad from
"The fact is, Minneapolis and St. Paul lack a fully fledged, reprap-making, coding, crafting, tinkering, laser-etching, soldering hackerspace/maker collective in the vein of NYCResistor, Make:Philly and The Hacktory. Ironically, we do have a fantastic children's maker space, Leonardo's Basement. However, its adult offshoot, Studio Bricolage, has never quite taken off, perhaps because it lacks a dedicated space."

Bre Pettis | I Make Things - My Talk at 25c3 - Rapid Prototype Your Life
Around the 39:00 mark, when discussing hacker collectives Pettis says that he thinks "school is basically dead. What can replace school is this idea of communities that care enough about learning that they're willing to figure stuff things out and then share what they've learned and document it. I don't know exactly what this is called, but I really like it better than schools." via: video at:
