Last night, some of us Terrapin Hackers flew a makeshift banner with our mascot using quadcopters.

Collider is presently buffered in the HCIL, overflowing the cubicle of +Michael Gubbels. Come to the HCIL (in Hornbake, South Wing) to dig into it.

In the sleuthing for my previous post, I discovered the Lincoln Makerspace. The space looks like a good one for anyone of the Lincoln-Omaha area (or those, like myself, visiting it). The Omaha Maker Group wrote an article about the Lincoln Makerspace at http://omahamakergroup.org/2012/05/15/lincoln-makerspace/. The article provides an intriguing impression of the makerspace. The Omaha Maker Group seems like a good group, too (http://omahamakergroup.org/). Generally, a growing community seems to exist, not to mention a growing number of resources and enough creative energy among the diverse range of Nebraska makers to support any makers in the area—simply finding out about this stuff is exciting.

I also stumbled upon FUSE, a coworking space in Lincoln (http://www.fusecoworking.com/). I see this space as a different part of the the Lincoln rendition of the larger ethos of creative making. It's got good location, too. It's above The Mill in the Haymarket District.

I just did a bit of sleuthing about the making and hacker scenes around Lincoln and Omaha. (I have been in Nebraska for the past few weeks for the holidays, and am currently in Lincoln, where I lived while studying undergraduate computer science.)

There are some really intriguing, relatively recent developments in the maker scene. The University of Nebraska—Lincoln should soon be the home of a maker space, set to be "student-run" (reportedly), sure to be facilitated by a combination of students, professors, and others. I read that the maker space will be built on the new Innovation Campus (http://innovate.unl.edu/), which itself, I think, is an intriguing, larger, project that seems to be, in effect, creating a convergence context for the university and private organizations. I can see the maker space and the Innovation Campus as important resources that provide supportive spaces and foster the tooling of the creative makers of Nebraska, especially in Lincoln. Nice.
