Original post made on Mar 15, 2012

Here's hoping they manage to raise the money they need to bring the building up to code. It was interesting to hear that Pinterest got started at HackerDojo. It clearly shows that this institution is bringing real economic value to Mountain View. The next big job-creator is being built somewhere right now -- let's maximize the chances it's in our city of Mountain View!

Great idea, now let's hope that we can get some local media coverage, and lots of pics.

If I don't understand something or agree with it, I argue against it with all of the conviction I can muster. I'm not a hacker. Down with the Hacker Dojo!
