Hacker Dojo


I visited Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, California on 29-10-2010. HD is a coworking and hackerspace combined. It is about 8000 sq ft in total, and is housed in what used to be a stained/art glass factory. The main door opens into a reception area of the “office” section of the space. The reception area has a monitor showing upcoming events, a computer for guest sign in, a donation box for USD10 per day use, a user-donated library, and sofas/beanbags. To the right is a “lab” area, which functions as a hackerspace, with a large communal desk, electronic benches against the wall, a user-donated small milling machine, and some bike racks. The rest of the “office” is two-storied, with a clean kitchen on the first floor, and has several office rooms with desks in them on the second floor. They are used mostly by entrepreneurs and coworking individuals.


The adjacent "warehouse" space has two big open high-ceiling spaces. One of them has a large loft upstairs, and large communal desks with a soda vending machine on the side.


The loft has DJ equipment for parties, and it is also used for movie projection.


The adjacent large open space, which is filled with chairs, is primarily used for events. It seems to hold 100+ people and has a large blank wall used for projection.
