Nashua "Hackerspace" Looks to Reopen
In Nashua, engineers, gadget lovers, tech enthusiasts and other so-called “makers” are working to reopen MakeIt Labs; Nashua city inspectors shut the space down late last year over safety and permitting issues.
MakeIt Labs isn't quite a lab - it's more commonly called a "hackerspace." To explain what that means, All Things Considered host Brady Carlson talks with David Brooks, science reporter for the Telegraph of Nashua and author of the Granite Geek blog.
During this conversation, David Brooks makes reference to MAKE Magazine. MAKE visited MakeIt Labs in 2011 and brought back a video tour. This was taken, of course, before the closing in December 2011.
