No.  I don't want to have to go through the "Hackers aren't bad,
m'kay?" discussion during an interview, that could torpedo the whole
thing because I don't expect HR (excuse me... "HC") to know about it.
 However, I've mentioned being associated with a hackerspace in the
second and third interviews, and I'm fairly certain that it's gotten
me a couple of jobs as a result (namely, working on a RepRap and
building synthesizers).  At $job{'current'} a few of my cow-orkers
even started hanging out at hackerspaces and seem to have fallen in
love with the notion.

The most annoying thing is avoiding the non-compete, actually.
