Come Visit!

We advise you visit us at some point. It rocks!

Come with an open mind

We're probably not what you expect, and you might not be what we were expecting. Life is full of little surprises, and we're doing what we can to keep it that way. Mostly we want to learn about things, and build nifty stuff. Some of us like tearing things apart, or inventing. But, we're game for pretty much any creative endvor or chance to learn, from languages to lockpicking, woodworking to knitting mathematics, and everything in between.

Don't eat that!

We are not child safe. We are barely adult safe. Folks entering the space can be exposed to adult-themed ideas, concepts, language and items. We have some tools and materials that can be hazardous if used improperly. Children are welcome to the space with close adult supervision, and adults, just be prepared for what you may encounter.

Guests of the Members

Our space is member owned and member run. Until you are a member, you are a guest. We are not a public facility (although we sometimes seem like it). People at the space may be busy on projects, deep in thought, or working with something noisy and/or smelly. There could even be meetings or events going on. We try to be polite and introduce ourselves, but we're not perfect. Don't get expect we will have all of the answers or time to help with your project. We do what we can, but one on one technology tutoring isn't our primary focus. As a guest, please ask before using any tools or guff too.

Hostile network

The network at Hive76 should be regarded as potentially hostile. This means that you should assume that any unencrypted communications over the network could be seen by others. We discourage destructive tinkering, but it is wise to be aware of the potential for sniffing/tracking of internet activity. Stick to using SSL or secure VPNs for anything you don't want other people in the room to read (including passwords). If you don't know how to protect your communications with encryption, someone would be glad to help teach you. Thanks to Noisebridge for the great Visitor Advice template!
