XinCheJian’s Neighborhood

I have recently been asked quite a lot of questions about hackerspace, hacker culture and impact of hackerspace in China. This has gotten me starting to think a lot about what it means to run a hackerspace. I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood and find anything that’s related to makers. The following pictures are shops with in 500 meters of our new location in Anhua Lu. It’s a typical Shanghai neighborhood and quite interestingly how many maker related shops are around us.

经过在 新单位二楼三个月的孵化后,新车间成长了,要飞了。在安化路和江苏路的老工厂里面找到了一个100平米的新场地,新车间现在真的在工厂里面了。应该在三月底就会装修好。欢迎大家来玩。
