Hackerspace Hong Kong


In order to promote Hardware Freedom Day that was hosted on April 20, I went to visit the only hackerspace in Hong Kong, the DimSumLabs. We met some new geeky friends including Graham, a professor at PolyU and Manolis, web admin at DimSumLabs among other many things… We had a lot of great discussions and talked from 8pm until 2am. We ended up agreeing to host some events in PolyU together in the near future.

The following Saturday, we went to do site visit and talked more. Of course we also met with our old friend, Mathieu who just started a hacking group in Hong Kong and had a very great first event. His main occupation these days apart from his job, is to work on an improved input method for Hong Kongese. We also invited him to join Digital Freedom Foundation as a director as he is helping us coordinating and running some local activities in Hong Kong, which happen to be a requirement now. All in all it was a great week, not really a HFD event but definitely big steps forwards for us.
