Hackerspace spotlight – The Black Lodge @the_black_lodge

Untitled

Adafruit supplies hundreds of hackerspaces and makerspaces around the world with tutorials and great electronics (with great discounts!). We also have a series of articles on how to start your own hackerspace by Eric Michaud. We’re celebrating all of them on the Adafruit blog!

Today is The Black Lodge!

The Eastside Hackerspace has been renamed The Black Lodge.

“The legend says that every spirit must pass through there on the way to perfection. There, you will meet your own shadow self. My people call it ‘The Dweller on the Threshold’ … But it is said, if you confront the Black Lodge with imperfect courage, it will utterly annihilate your soul.” – Dep. Hawk, Twin Peaks

The Black Lodge is available for use by the community to host meetings, maker events, and classes, and also offers open house days when the facilities are open to the public at large. The Lodge consists of a medium sized classroom area, a lounge, and a workshop area. Future plans include adding a full foundry and metal working shop. The Lodge also offers computing facilities and a segmented network for security research or code development projects.

Currently the Lodge is home to the DEFCON Groups Seattle meeting (http://www.dc206.org/).

The Black Lodge is supported by 12 financially culpable members who pay all rent, upkeep, and bills. Use of the Lodge is free to the community, and donations are strongly encouraged. Full membership is extended by invitation of the board to those individuals who show dedication in supporting the Lodge and its mission.

To see a list of upcoming events, or if you would like to host a meeting or event at the Lodge, please contact us through our website. http://www.blacklodgeresearch.org/

The Black Lodge is located at 17725 NE 65th A-155, Redmond, WA 98052, adjacent to Marymoor park. When visiting the Lodge, please take care to only park in our area (directly in front of the shop) or along the ends of the building complex. We want to be good neighbors to the other tenants and there is plenty of parking along the edges of the complex. Access to the Lodge is only available during scheduled events or by arrangement.

We recently updated our distributor, reseller and hackerspace pricing! Now, 1 quantity has UP TO a 30% discount off many items, this is allows you to get a great discount by just ordering 1 of something. Great for folks who just want to try 1 item of each of something out in their store, etc. As always, once you order 50+ or more of something the discount goes UP TO 40% off many items as well. Note! *Not ALL items have reseller pricing, reseller pricing is for items we can discount for our resellers. We are adding more all the time! Remember, the minimum order is $250 per order, not including shipping.

We have a very easy reseller program and would love to have more great people & companies as a distributors/resellers/hackerspaces. Our products are high-quality and we think they’re the best engineered & designed in the market.
