Options are good and we aim to deliver so me, Rick & Clif have been scouring Eugene for further locations. We thought we'd share & ask for feedback. This location is 30 minutes bus ride from the University of Oregon campus & is ready 1st May.
The thing is, we have 2 options for this location. Option A is twice the monthly price of Option B (although for the initial 4 months Option A would be 25% more expensive, climbing to 100% at the 6 month mark.).
Let us know what you think!

The awesome minded Mark from our community here in Eugene pointed out that the wonderful folk at ThinkGeek have, if this is possible to believe had what may be their most wonderful idea. Providing the very raw stuff of a builders imagination with electronic returns:
I am listening to Mr. Mister as I fill in the application!
Eugene Maker Space communication central has been a little as we focus on getting a fixed space nailed down that Eugene Maker Space can call home. Our move-in date of April 1st has been pushed back to May 1st as the current tenant (John) needs a bit more time to migrate to a smaller space himself.
However, we'd like to start getting a feel for how many community members are interested in becoming members of Eugene Maker Space. So if you've been following this blog, or the twitter feed and have been waiting to jump on board or know someone who is, shout-out.
That is all!
We'd like to thank Matt Clymer for stopping in Eugene to interview us during his gran turismo of West coast hackerspaces / makerspaces / spaces / labs / oh, you get the idea. We're excited to read / listen to the final cut and hope our passionate enthusiasm of all things hacker doesn't make post production too much of a headache.
Bon voyage Matt!
Home. A powerful word. An essentialÂ goal for any makerspace. We're at the stage of locating our own and we thought sharing the experience would be fun.
Have we been lounging in the tranquil golden dew of easy days and well mixed cocktails, swinging lazily under a tropical palm? You may think that from our silence since New Year but we have in fact been extremely busy. We've incorporated, but together by-laws and actively looking for a space to hold more than a half dozen people. We're well on our way to hackerspacedom!
A shell wiki is available and about to bear the fruits of our legal endeavors and all this while we've been keeping apace with our day-to-day responsibilities. But, all of us here at Eugene Maker Space feel it's worth the investment. We know we have something great to share. You ready to join in?
The season of giving, sharing and all-round benevolence is upon us and opportunities to spread our love of knowledge & craftsmanship abound. We urge everyone who has been thinking of checking out their local makerspace [nÃ©e hackerspace] to finally take that giant leap: look up it's address, knock on it's door and enter.
If you already have your own Joy Of Craft (1st, 2nd or more edition) why not do a little promotion for the space you enjoy so much? Slip in a reference at the water cooler about it. Pin a flier or card to the local coffee shop bulletin board, but stop at writing it's telephone number in the gas station cubicle: you're going way to far down enthusiasm road.
Your space needs you. You need your space. Happy Holidays!
