Hackerspaces edition Local History Editathon!

On Sunday, February 3rd, Oakland Wiki invited the public to our headquarters in Sudo Room, a downtown Oakland hackerspace, for a hackerspaces-themed editathon. Hackerspaces are a relatively new phenomenon to the Bay Area. They are a meeting ground for people interested in using technologies of all kinds to pursue their creative projects. People pool together their monetary resources to buy high-price items such as 3D printers, and their intellectual resources to help each other out in their creative projects.
