If you’ve not heard of a Dojo before, it is a Japanese word meaning literally “Place of the Way”. The term is usually associated with places where young people learn the martial arts, but it can be any place where “The Way” to do something can be learned if you’re willing to spend some time there.
Several years ago I was following the progress of a group of engineers who set up TechShop, a membership-based workshop in Mountain View. I am envious of that too! But now that I see how easy it would be to set up a Hacker Dojo I think it would be an outstanding idea for the Tri-Cities! I wish there had been a place like that available when I was a kid! What a perfect way to help kids channel some of their creative energies into useful projects that teach them positive things about technology! Anybody else interested?
