I'd like to say don't get discouraged.  I've been working on Hak-it for a
long time (1st post on the website was July 17, 2008 ).  Since then I've
been trying to gather some support get community members interested, etc.
I've got a few people who are willing to help.  I've talked to many people
in town about the hacker space.  The biggest problem I've had is explaining
to everyone I talk to "what a hacker space is", my solution is to change the
name from Hak-it/Indiantown Hacker Space to "Indiantown High Tech Community
Workshop".  I believe this change will help move the discussion away from
"Hackers" to actually making things happen.

I've figured out our 1st public project, setting up some donated computers
at a local park.  Simple, yes, but they have No OS, and No codes on the
machines so I'm gonna be making it an educational experience by installing

Well enough rambling...
