Randomdata is group of people who want to do "technical" stuff. Randomdata is a hackerspace. A hackerspace is a real (as opposed to virtual) place where people with common interests, usually in science, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialize and collaborate. A hackerspace can be viewed as an open community lab, workbench, machine shop, workshop and/or studio where people of diverse backgrounds can come together to share resources and knowledge to build/make things. We build, we break, we create, we invent and of course we hack. There are no actual limits to creativity (unless it's illegal ;)).
Some history In December 2008 Fish_ had a visit from his beloving friend Eric Michaud, Eric inspired Fish_ to start a hackerspace in Utrecht since there wasn't one yet. The first thing Fish_ did was to contact Kahits and brainstorm how to start a space in the Netherlands. Within a few weeks also XOR was added to the team and this is how the first board of the Randomdata foundation was formed. In the beginning we had no space, we started to do "homespace sessions" and had a lot of fun. People contacted us and soon we had a core group who formed Randomdata. After HAR2009 we had a group big enough to rent a physical space and we went hunting for a place. In October 2009 we found our space where we still are. It's not big but we have an awesome place to Hack, Make, thinker and a lot of other things we like to do.
Hack the planet!
The Randomdata community is supported by the Randomdata Foundation (Stichting Randomdata).
We have found our space to Hack, Socialize, break and build
The space is in a nice shopping street with all kinds of facility's like computer stores, a supermarket, some cafes, restaurants, donnerkebab :-), sushi, wokstuff, c0ff33 toko, etc. It's not too big but fine enough to start. Also the rent, other facilities and so on are already arranged or we're working on it :) We have our regular space and also "space extention". We can host in the regulair space up to 10 people, in the extention another 30.
If you want to come over, email us at [email protected] or conatct us on IRC. Usually we are always at the space Tuesdays at 19:00 but please contact us to be sure.
