Testing, testing.... Is thing on? Ladies and Gentleman, let me welcome you to london hack space's (or london hackspace or perhaps londonhack space) global grand challenge project blog.

It has been a busy week at london hackspace. We huddled together on Tuesday together to brainstorm our project, finally coming up with X. A productive meeting with Mark and the rest of the European hackspaces was held at Y date with.

That accomplished we swiftly set about ordering components and doing some initial coding/designing. Follow us on github to see everything as it happens.

I note one of you has his hand and wants to ask a question. Go ahead. "What is our hackerspace's philosophy?" you ask. Well I'm glad you asked that question as I was struggling to come up with an un-contrived way to work this into a blog post. You really saved my bacon. Well our hackspace can been summed up with three sayings.

0) Don't be on fire.

This embodies our essential and fundamental philosophical belief that each individual human should strive not to combust in an oxygen rich atmosphere. The rules of thermodynamics are against us, but with care we have so far managed to maintain this rule. We have enshrined this philosophy as our hackspaces rule 0, showing the reverence that we hold this axiom.

1) Well volunteered.

We believe in self-empowerment and also spreading out power among our members. So whenever someone suggests a project or problem that needs fixing they become responsible for implementing it.

2) Let me show you this neat thing.

We enjoy sharing our knowledge and projects with other people, this extends to young hackdays.

That interlude out of the way, let us meet the team:
