What started as a miniature makerspace in a Harford County garage eventually grew to be a major makerspace in East Baltimore, where “between 25 and 30 men drop in weekly or daily to work on their creations,” according to the Baltimore Sun in its story about the Baltimore Hackerspace.
There is, however, one quirk to the place: there are no female members.
“There used to be,” says longtime member Miles Pekala. But because the old location didn’t have a bathroom (the guys just went out back), the women stopped coming. “I don’t know why they won’t come out,” he said. “We have a bathroom now.”
