Still on the east coast of the United States, our tour leads us to the mythical Genspace, one of the first biohackerspaces, located in New York City. There we met with Greg Gage who gives everyone the opportunities to put his hands on neuroscience thanks to his great company Backyard Brains.
The next stop in our tour of (bio)hackerspaces leads us actually to another kind of place… Back in the USA, we are now with Charles Fracchia at the MIT Medialab, Boston, Massachusetts. Formerly deeply involved in DIYBio, Charles shares with us his current vision of this movement with more hindsight.
Still in Montreal, Quebec! We are now with Sarah Choukah, an active member of the biohacking community Bricobio and PhD student in communications. She takes some of her time to tell us about her passions for open source history in software development and, now, in biology.
Our tour of hackerspaces lead us now to the Eastern North America: the biohacking community Bricobio in Montreal, Quebec. Kevin Chen, co-founder of this great group, answered to our few questions and gave us an insight in the biohacker mindset.
Still in the prolific Oakland, California. With one foot in Sudoroom and the other in Counter Culture Labs at least, Craig Rouskey met us to share his experience in taking advantage of the richnesses from diverse communities. This happy revolutionary biohacker is telling us a little more about him and biohacking.
Next stop in our running tour of hackerspaces in North America: Brightwork CoResearch, Houston, Texas. Jacob Shiach, founder of this 24/7 place for science addicts, has opened the doors to us. Let’s discover this passionated and passionating “indie” scientist.
Back in California, in the dynamic city of Oakland where the great and promising community of citizen scientist Counter Culture Labs gets together. Matthew Harbowy, one of its active members, tells us his huge curiosity and pleasure about science and his deep desire to make everyone a part of it.
Now, let’s have a break in the beautiful city of Vancouver, British Columbia. Michael Yamashita, builder of the local DIYBio community, answered a few questions for us, revealing his profound belief in a healthier life thanks to biohacking.
We are now leaving the US for a while to discover some great DIY communities in Canada. Let’s start with the dynamic Victoria Makerspace, Victoria, British Columbia. Derek Jacoby, particularly involved here in the community biotech lab Biospace, is introducing himself and his deep motivations.
Still in Berkeley Biolabs, Berkeley, California. We are now with Ryan Bethencourt, co-founder and CEO of this space, and he takes some of his time to tell us about his main interests. His keywords? biotechnologies, innovation and hackers!
