A quick trip to Vestmannaeyjar

Last weekend I went with Tryggvi, Steinn, Freyr, Kári and Nicolas to Vestmannaeyjar to visit the Fab Lab there. We spent an entire weekend, mostly sans sleep, designing, laser cutting, and generally being productive. The fallout has started to appear. Now there is talk about setting up a Hacker Space in Reykjavík. Hacker Spaces are similar to Fab Labs, the only real difference is cultural. Fab Labs are very much about technological outreach, community empowerment and education, whilst Hacker Spaces are more about unfettered creativity, hardware development, community building, Hacker culture, hacktivism, culture jamming, and that sort of thing.
