After nearly two years at the helm, Hive76 leader Far McKon is passing the torch.
“I’m off to go build stuff,” McKon said in an email to Technically Philly.
Spun out from The Hacktory in March 2009, Hive76 has grown quickly, rapidly expanding to its current headquarters at 915 Spring Garden.
McKon said that he will be handing the reigns of “instigator” to Mike Hogan.
In an interview last year, McKon told Technically Philly that Hive76 prides itself on being a “second generation” hackspace that is open to the public. The space at routinely hosts robotics meetings, guitar effects workshops and open houses.
The hacker space recently held an open house and was on the front page of NPR.com last week.
