"Once I realized that there were real, serious problems, fundamental problems that I could do something to address, I didn’t see a way to forget that. I didn’t see a way not to." - Aaron Swartz

The talks and discussion after the film will be on Google Hangout and streamed live to YouTube should everything go smoothly.

Our annual Christmas party is here!

RSVP at the link!

Hello friends and hackers,

To those who have so very kindly pledged either a 6 month membership or a one-off donation to our moving fund. As you know, we have managed to secure a new home for HackerspaceSG at 344B King George's Building (http://goo.gl/M8QBG2) in Lavender. So yay, do drop by the new hackerspace when you have the time!

Funds are, of course, necessary for us to get up and running again, so for those who have pledged please do kindly transfer your pledged funds to the HackerspaceSG Standard Chartered bank account below. 

HackerspaceSG Bank Account Details
Bank code: 7144
Branch code: 057
Standard Chartered Account: 5701304090
Name: Hackerspace.SG Pte. Ltd.

For those who haven't, it's not too late! Members, both existing and new, and supporters can still pledge your support in the form of a 6 month membership, or a one-off donation here: http://goo.gl/nOo4Fr

If you're able to, transferring all 6 months of your pledge up front would be very very helpful. If you have previously indicated that you'd prefer to transfer only a portion of the 6 months up front, that's not a problem either.

For all transfers made to us to our bank account, please kindly drop a mail to membership@hackerspace.sg with a screenshot of your transaction to facilitate accounting.

Once again, HackerspaceSG thanks you for your kind support, and we welcome one and all to drop by our new home soon!

Membership sign up details and updates will follow!

Hello fellow hackers and friends of HackerspaceSG,

The purpose of this email is to ask you to pledge your financial support towards the continuity of a physical Hackerspace. The location is still being finalised, you may also decided to pledge right now at http://goo.gl/nOo4Fr

HackerspaceSG was founded with the aim being a home to us hackers. Over the past four years, we have been the launchpad for events like BarCampSG and GeekcampSG and we’ve played host to the Python Platoon, the Ruby Brigade, the PHP Meetup, iOS Dev Scout, CodeAndroid, Hack and Tell and more. We’ve been enlightened by the Humanist Society and been entertained by the Ukulele Meetup. Our members have given back to the community with workshops on both hardware and software, and we’ve even been home to successful startups like Viki.

When HackerspaceSG first launched in 2009, we asked the community to pledge their support by committing to a 6-month membership. It was thanks to the pledged funds and our wonderfully supportive community that we have been able able to get our very own hackerspace up and running.

It’s at this critical juncture that we’d like to reach out to our community for support. 

On November 14, our lease at 70A Bussorah Street will end. However, this is not the end of HackerspaceSG. Our community members are already hard at work planning our next steps and an active search is on going for what will be our new home. (To be part of that effort, do check out our HSG Moving Out task list on Trello: goo.gl/SZmstP

We’d really like to move into a place that can support a wide diversity of hackers (yes, hardware guys, we hear you!) [1], but we need time, and importantly, we need the resources to be able to fund the move and the potential renovations involved. 

Once again, we humbly ask for your support so that we may find the resources to move into a new place and continue serving the community that has grown together through all these years.

We’re looking at raising about SGD 40,000 for the initial 6 month runway (rent and operating expenses). 

To help HackerspaceSG continue to serve the community, we kindly ask your support to make a pledge over at http://goo.gl/nOo4Fr. Thank you for taking the time to read this and feel free to share this.

Ruiwen,
on behalf of HackerspaceSG
