Bangspace (!space) is Bangkok first Hackerspace. It was founded after a long period of planning and finally a trip of some founding members to the Singapore Hackerspace. !space is situated in the office shophouse of a founding member, with a central location in Soi Ekkemai close to the main public transport system (BTS Syktrain) and only a block away from Sukhumvit Road, the main road of downtown Bangkok. The Ekkemai area is a popular upper scale living, entertainment and nightlife area. We have one room availbale at the moment, that if funished for about 10 -15 people at the same time. It has airconditioning, soldering and hother electric tools, two computer and a video projector. There is the potential of using more rooms in the same building if investing in additional a/c units.
Our philosophy is to be as open as possible, only limited by security measures. Events are always open to the public wiith no obligation to become a paid member. Besides that fact we have a solid base of member to support the hackerspace idea.
Groups activity is increasing with 3 weekly events in the evenings, centered around web programming, mobile phone platforms and hardware projects. Bangkok as a city of 12 million certainly has the potential to let !space grow much bigger.
