Wikis excel at collaboration.  Wikis are made up of a series of unique pages with evolving content.  A Wiki, as a whole is an organic means of organizing a chaotic lot of information among a vast group of people.  It's also the best way for us to share our efforts with the rest of the world.

Welcome to HacDC. We are a hacker space located in Washington, DC. HacDC members improve the world by creatively rethinking technology. We break, build, and occasionally abuse technology in the pursuit of greater knowledge about how it works and repurposing it to build new things. Our shop is located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of the District of Columbia.

If you're new here, you should start by looking at our public web site at hacdc.org. Our Wiki is mostly for internal organization, but you're welcome to look through to get a sense of what we work on (and consider joining yourself!). We invite you to subscribe to our Blabber public discussion mailing list.
