The latest way to contribute to the nerd community using Kickstarter: BioCurious, a nascent hackerspace focusing on science, to be located in Mountain View, CA. They need money for rent and pro-grade laboratory equipment.

Curious about Biology? Find out more at the new biology collaborative lab space where citizen science moves out of the classroom and into the community. Following the successful example of hackerspaces such as Noisebridge, Langton Labs, Hacker Dojo, and co-working spaces such as the Hub, we’re pleased to offer the first Bay Area space dedicated to Non-Institutional Biology. Got an idea for a startup? Join the DIY, “garage biology” movement and found a new breed of biotech. Meet cofounders and friends, and make things you’d never dreamed possible.

      Thanks for posting, John. + Peretz, I corrected the spelling on the kickstarter page, too.

    Biotechnology literally means technology applied to manipulate the living world. Humans have been at this a very long time. It’s one of the oldest technologies, and its greatest successes have been in agriculture, animal husbandry, and fermentation.
