Interview with Irish Radio

Last night, I had the honor of an interview with Irish Radio show IT Freely.  I discussed hackerspaces in general, Pumping Station: One, and the nanotech and Scanning Tunneling Electron Microscope projects I’m working on (look on my personal website), and the current state of garage tinkering and science.

Pumping Station: One in the Columbia Chronicle!

Yesterday, Pumping Station: One was featured in an article in the Columbia Chronicle!  Thanks to Evan Minsker for coming out to our meeting a few weeks ago, interviewing some of our members, and writing the article about us.

Hello and welcome to anyone who came here after reading that article!  The article gives you a good idea of some of the things that we’re up to, but there’s definitely more to explore.  We are a group of people interested in a diverse range of art and technology…chances are that if you’re a person with creative ideas, you’ll find something interesting here.  Make sure you take a good look at our wiki; it’s full of information about who we are as an organization, and what kinds of projects our members are working on so far.  You can also join our public Google group and start talking to people involved in Pumping Station: One, or our  announcements Google group in order to hear about events we have coming up.

If you are intrigued by what you have read and you want to get involved, we’re excited to meet you!  The best way to get involved is to come to a meeting.  We meet every Tuesday night at Cafe Mercury, 1505 W. Chicago Ave., at 7:00pm.  Everyone is welcome to come to our meetings, learn about us, talk about projects, and become a member of Pumping Station: One!
