New Hack City is:
a hacker collective - hackubator of dangerously curious minds
a workshop - facility for techn0muhlogical endeavors
a group of friends - hugs, music, and an occasional shindig
We believe in collaboration. Our core assumption is that by pooling talents
and resources, we can produce cool stuff.
We choose to follow our own enthusiasm wherever it may lead. We don't suffer
from the profit motive, so we often wind up someplace unique. We pursue
projects because they pique our curiosity-- not because they might generate
cash, or make us famous, or get us laid.
We believe that the best teacher is hands-on experience. Experience helps us
differentiate between how something is supposed to work and how it *really*
works. Discovery, exploration, invention, and expression: it's what we call
This is what makes us "New Hack City."
Providing access to technologies of all kinds
We have broad tech interests-- and we like to share them. We are interested
in the vanguard of computer networking, vintage technology, and even art,
music, and other stuff seemingly unrelated to computers and networks.
Enabling research & development
We like it when we can help people discuss new ideas, test theories, or
just show off something cool. We are happy to serve as a proving ground
for new inventions.
Ongoing improvement of New Hack City
Our success as a hacker collective is gauged by how well we meet the
continuing needs of our membership. Constant assessment and renewal of our
organizational and physical infrastructure helps us to create an environment
that is accomodating, efficient, and stimulating.
