NYC Resistor’s “barbot” under construction

Manhattan-based radio reporter Jon Kalish emailed me to let us know that he has a two-part piece on hackerspaces airing on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, starting this Sunday. The first piece includes visits to NYC Resistor in Brooklyn and Hive 76 in Philadelphia. Frequent MAKE contributor and hackerspace evangelist Mitch Altman is also featured. The following Sunday (11/21), the story is on hackerspaces serving as incubators for small businesses.

    Dates – tss tss – time and space are sometimes a bit abstract to me (my brain did not register that Sunday the 7th of November was.. last week!)

    so thanks :-)
