The rise of hacker spaces…

Urban Studies – For Geeks, a Frat House and Lab, All in One –… Great article on NYC Resistor!

Diana Eng is one of seven women in the collective. A former contestant on the television series “Project Runway,” she created a sweatshirt with a digital camera embedded in the hood that takes a picture when the wearer’s heart rate is elevated, creating snapshots of the day’s excitements.

“My designs were too nerdy for ‘Project Runway,’ ” Ms. Eng said with a giggle. “But here they fit right in.”

To help pay the rent, the collective offers classes for $25 each on topics from basic electronics to the art of laser-cutting Christmas decorations.

The group’s success has not gone unnoticed.

“Resistor blew the doors off the scene here,” said Eric Moore, a hacker from Bushwick who is forming his own group. “They’re the next generation of American hacking. The rest of us are just trying to catch up.”

    Who is this Eric? I’m also in Bushwick and if there’s a local group I’d be interested in hearing more.
