Years ago I heard of the concept of a hackerspace/makerspace. In essence, a hackerspace is a community-operated physical place where people can meet and work on their projects.

But, the work that can come out of those spaces is far more impressive than that description makes it sound like.

I’ve wanted to bring you the concept but since I’m not an expert, I needed to do it in the context of an interview. I was thrilled when a listener of the show recommended that I interview Jessica Fong, president of the South Side Hackerspace in Chicago.

In the show, Jessica shares details on:

  • What hackerspaces are and some of the great things that have emerged from them.
  • How their organization was started.
  • Advice for others interested in founding such a venture.

Enjoy the interview!
