-====== Who we are ====== +
- +
- +
-Lots of different people are involved in the Electron Club. You can get involved as an individual or as part of a group. One of our main features over the years is in providing a free space for not-for-profit and voluntary groups involved in areas related to DIY technology, community media and environmental activities to meet and develop work.  +
- +
-There are a number of groups who meet on a regular basis and others who meet on a more occasional basis or for specific projects. See the [[groups]] section for more information. +
- +
-Individuals are also welcome to join and use the facilities for their own projects, and many of our current members are just such people pursuing their own projects and hobbies. +
- +
-====== What is Free Open Source Software, etc? ====== +
- +
-To learn more about that these things are have a look at some of the articles in our [[onlinelibrary | online library]] or come along to an event or project and see for yourself. +
