Metalab: Vienna Hacker Space

After being in Berlin, I drove through the night to Vienna, Austria to go to the Metalab! Metalab is an awesome hacker space in Vienna. It’s located in the heart of the city, right near the parliament building. It’s a vital and active space and they have been intentional about setting it up and making things happen there. They’ve got facilities for presentations, community space for hardware and software hacking, a chill room for playing video games, a library, a foosball table and a wetroom for working on photography and circuit board etching. Enki, a founder, gave a great presentation describing the intentions, infrastructure and development of their hacker space.
