Interesting, I'd be up for getting a nottingham space going, have a venue that I can use, just need some mega nurds now, to create skynet out of a dustbin lid, and old tv set...

I look forward to hearing from you soon. 

Looks cool.

The following may be of some interest, don't let those down south have all 
the fun! 

More Hackspace
April 2nd, 2009

Below is the text of an e-mail I’m sending to various groups with which I’m

involved. Please feel free to copy & re-post, Dig/Reddit/social bookmark, 
Tweet it, link to it at http://www.goodgnus.org/2009/04/more-hackspace/ or 
just talk about it to anyone who might be interested in joining in the 
hackspace fun :-)

Hackspace - a place for hacking. Playful invention with hardware, from 
Arduino to 3D printers. As one of the hackspaces puts it: “We’re looking 
to create a hackerspace where anyone interested in technology, or digital 
or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate.”

There are hackspaces all over the world [1], and now the UK. A new group 
[2] is trying to set up hackspaces in London [3] & Birmingham [4].

Why not the North West you ask? Well, I asked anyway ;) - so now we have a 
NW group - come and join the mailing list [5].

Members of Liverpool LUG have expressed an interest, and want to tie it in 
with planned workshops & the local arduino community. In Manchester the 
local coworking group are interested in sharing the space. In Stockport 
we’re looking at a storey of a nice mill building [6], and hoping to find 
a community of people to join in. In Bangor there’s a social enterprise 
start-up that would integrate very well with the space.
Join in

If you’re in N Wales or NW England, and interested in creative, fun (or 
profitable) things to do with computers, or would like to link such things 
with social action, perhaps, join the list. These things will only work 
with *people* - I’m committing a little time to help get these off the 
ground, but it’ll only work if we all muck in.
What next?

If you just want to follow what’s happening follow us on Twitter [7], sign 
up & lurk on the Google Group, or wait until we set up an [announce] 
mailing list.
