Dave Menninger's story

I remember hearing about hackerspaces from a few places online, but the article in Wired really crystallized it for me, like I think it did for a lot of people around the country. I wrote this blog post and went out to try and find other people into the idea locally.

I found Chris Anderson via his dorkbot-cinci page and met up with him at a Cinci2600 meeting at The Brewhouse. He said he was aware of a few others from 2600 and some other people too and I suggested we create a mailing list and meet up sometime. I think that's when we created the Google Group.

I remember Jason Bailey joining the Google Group and bring in a ton of people from ArsClan. Through the mailing list I think we scheduled our first meeting at Panera.
