Starting A Makerspace In Ayer (and meeting some guy named Eric...) Answered
The town of Ayer, MA held a meeting this past Thursday about starting a makerspace. This was sponsored by the Ayer Office of Economic Development. The main presenter was a local software engineer who proposed the idea. His model for the space is Artisan's Asylum in Somerville, MA.
For details, including an impromptu visit to Artisan's Asylum and meeting some very interesting people, see http://www.closegrain.com/2014/06/ayer-makerspace-initial-meeting.html.
