I have been a lifetime member of Techshop, and I certainly got my money's worth. Although I rarely went to Techshop, it was available to me when I needed it. I am also a member of Hacker Dojo, and Biocurious. I am a supporter of noisebridge.

I like to teach and learn by working on projects with others. A project I would like to work on with others is creating and improving a maker space.

Skills

My skills include:

  • Carpentry, plumbing, installing sheetrock, painting
  • Editing Wikipedia
  • Know many programming languages
  • Constructing computer hardware
  • Computer networking, including firewalls
  • Extensive use of SQL
  • CiviCRM
  • BaseCamp administrator
  • Knowledge of good safety practices
  • Designed and installed an access control system, including a magnetic lock and panic bar
  • Qualified to operate most of the equipment in Techshop
  • Although I am not a licensed electrician, I can wire to the Uniform Electrical Code
  • Basic accounting
  • Problem solving

Opinions

Techshop failed to make use of volunteers or to create community. Volunteering provides an opportunity for members to get to know each other, help each other, and learn from each other. However, volunteers must be managed. I do not feel comfortable volunteering, without some supervision. I hope Makernexus makes good use of volunteers.
