The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient Greek analogue computer and orrery used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes. It could also track the four-year cycle of athletic games which was similar, but not identical, to an Olympiad, the cycle of the ancient Olympic Games.
As our logo we wanted to use an abstract design of the Antikythera Mechanism to symbolise a piece of the mechanics in the ancient Greek history and its evolution through the centuries.
Thus, from the first ever mechanical computer made, which included differential movements of its gears, to modern computers and electronics (thus, the reason for adding the soldering iron) and of course, computer programming and sofware development (thus the ./ characters in front of the word hackspace). The ./ characters refer to the "current working directory" in Operating Systems and it is also used to "run" executable files on Linux based system from the command line, a.k.a. the Terminal.
A non-profit framework for building your own hackspace cluster. A community-run project where people come to share ideas, tools and knowledge.
