Hackerspace LA Takes The Next Step

This week marked a milestone of sorts for Hackerspace LA. We interested folks -- the ones who have been putting together the weekly meetups -- got together to discuss and make decisions about the next step towards making Hackerspace LA an on-going, self-supporting concern -- setting up our 501(c)3 corporation.


There are a lot of decisions to be made, but I am hoping to have a substantial role in building Hackerspace LA into a great group that helps its members achieve amazing things while also being a great resource for community outreach, projects, and education.

Education is one of my big interests and I am already generating a host of ideas for classes and projects for everyone in our community, both young and old. For me, education has always been one of the most important aspects of building the life and career you most desire. You need to experience the possibilities of life in order to make good decisions about your future direction. I hope the Hackerspace LA can be the source of many experiences in the years to come.

Hackerspace LA is also looking to partner with other organizations -- especially community organizations -- to help bring the joy and power of technology to everyone. If you are looking for technology presentations and activities for your school or group, drop is a line.

So, are you interested in getting in on the ground floor of hackerspace/makerspace right here in the San Fernando Valley? You can connect with Hackerspace LA in a number of ways.

Hackerspace Los Angeles (HackerspaceLA) displays and exhibits technology that hopes will spark an individual’s desire to peruse a hobby or learn more about that technology.  All our workshops are presented for free and all the technology that is presented is readily available and free to use, acquire, or reproduce. We provide the resources and information where all this technology can be acquired.
We are transitioning from a 470+ online members meetup group to a formal entity. We are working on turning HackerspaceLA into a formal entity operating in the San Fernando Valley that will provide FREE access to knowledge, tools, software, and working spaces. 
We are a group of technology enthusiasts building a #Hackerspace and #Makerspace in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, CA. HackerspaceLA is an advocate for the Open Hardware, Open Source, and STEM/STEAM initiatives.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us
