Tampa Hackerspace

Hello everyone!

I would like to introduce a new HackerSpace in Tampa, FL.

We formed a non-profit called Inspiration Labs in March of this year to pursue the creation of hackerspaces in the Tampa Bay area. I'm pleased to announce we are now opening a facility in an old cigar factory in the heart of Tampa. We have about 1600 square feet of space to start.

It is still early days for us. Acquiring the space is a huge milestone. We are now making room for the donated equipment and making plans to setup fabrication, textile, and electronics labs. We have started regular meetings at the beginning of this month and are now actively scheduling classes.

I've been lurking on the discuss list here for many months and really appreciate the camaraderie and knowledge displayed. It would have been even harder to start up without the resources I've found on this list and the website.

I've created a wiki page in the directory which you'll find here:

Cool - A little different than we did it, but all the more power to them!
