In the spirit of the “Humans of New York” photo series and social media phenomenon, Do Space is inspired to work with staff and volunteers to create a “Humans of Do Space” series that shares the stories of our members, volunteers, users and staff. The goal of this effort it to capture the people that are using the space and how it affects their lives. What does it allow them to do? What does it allow them to make? How are people using the space to overcome obstacles and get things done?

This month we are getting to know Ken Anderson who is an electronic technician and one of our regulars. Do Space Marketing Intern Danny sat down with Ken to ask him a few questions.

What does Do Space mean to you?

Do Space is a place where I can actually get things one. I have no space at home to lay my stuff out- but I have a space here. Plus, I use the Raspberry Pi that I check out to work on my projects.

What have you been able to accomplish at Do Space?

Hundreds, hundreds, and hundreds of hours coding on a linux firewalling project.

How does Do Space empower you to grow individually or grow your company?

It is a place where I can use my brain and make things a reality, so from idea stage to software. So, I make things happen here. 

What tools and resources are you using at Do Space?

I use the Raspberry Pi and the wifi. Once in awhile I log into a PC or Mac depending on the function of the task I need to accomplish. And Dunkin Donuts too.
