Running an Open Source Hackerspace
Knox Makers in Knoxville, TN is the area's premier hackerspace. In existence for almost 12 years, it boasts over 325 members and its base operations are fully supported by membership dues. It also has a commitment to open hardware and software, running all of its tools, behind the scenes operations, and teaching classes exclusively with FOSS. In this talk, Tracy will talk about why Knox Makers has chosen open source, some of the technologies they use, and what the challenges are to this commitment.
