I was supposed to give a workshop at Osilab, the hackerspace in Lille, France, when I was there in November. Instead, I toured the charred ruins of their space, as someone had broken in and burned the place.It was heart-breaking. In the two years of their existence, people at Osilab had created a beautiful space, with so many different diverse projects, and most was destroyed. But rather than dissolve in dejection, the community has grouped together to find an build out a new space! And they're well on their way. They started an Octopousse campaign (a French crowd source funding site) to help raise the €3,490 they need. Care to help? http://octopousse.com/projets/osilab-ng (Put that into translate.google.com if you don't read French.) Please spread the word to help them get up and running again. Cheers,Mitch.
