I’m Chris - I’m a long time proponent of maker spaces, having tried to set one up in University of Kent, Cantebury as a founding committee member of Tinkersoc - which I wasn’t able to do in my time but my successors have been successful since! I have also been a member of London Hackspace since 2010, been involved in EMF setting up the camp radio station one year.
By trade, I’m a Broadcast Engineer, but with an electronics background and a tendency to build my own furniture (that’ll probably be my first project!). I also take photographs with film, and develop it myself.
I’m not fully signed up just yet - but I highly suspect I will be as soon as I visit for the first time either this Wednesday or the next. So far I’m really liking the friendly vibe of SLMS from what I can see on Discourse, and I think I’d like a community that’s a bit smaller and more manageable than LHS has become of late.
Look forward to meeting some of you!
