Hacklab Toronto!

Posted by aonomus on April 3, 2011

So I’ve been a member of a hackerspace for about a year now, unofficially for near 2 years. The hackerspace in question is, a hackerspace in Toronto, Canada.

For instance, many users post a multitude of personal information with no regard as to the negative consequences. Pictures of parties (dry or not) would be the most obvious example for outsiders, profile information combined with pictures would only act as a reason for negative stereotypes to be built against individuals despite their actual nature.
