borderlands hacklab closed until further notice

lotu5 for the borderlands hacklab

Due to a lack of volunteers, the borderlands Hacklab at the City Heights Free Skool will be closing until further notice. It is likely that we will reopen in late august, after some hacklab volunteers have returned from traveling, but right now the project is not sustainable.

It often seems to me that when projects lose members and are too small to be sustainable, it becomes more important to put energy into reorganizing, rethinking and finding new people than to keep slogging on with the same focus, trying to hold the project together with just one or two people. If there isn't enough enthusiasm in San Diego for a community based hacklab and a collective dedicated to providing tech solutions for radical projects, then maybe it's time has come and gone.

I hope that's not the case. I hope people just haven't gotten around to telling us they'd like to volunteer yet. If you'd like to see the borderlands Hacklab at the City Heights Free Skool continue to stay open for the residents of City Heights and anyone else who needs free access to computers and internet, please email us at sdhacklab A+ lists (d0t] riseup [d()t) net
