A couple of weeks ago, James and Willow spoke with Dale Dougherty from MAKE about Makerspace.com and their initiative with DARPA. Highlights from the talk:
- Dale is committed to the transparency of the process and will share more of the background with the wider community once the contract information is complete with DARPA
- We talked about the idea of encouraging hacker and makerspaces to increase and normalize their safety standards so that kids can go there on field trips
- We are going to check in with Dale on a monthly basis
