  • 7. In Geneva Geneva-based hackerspace “Post T enebras Lab” was officially created in 2009 at its constitutive general assembly. Our objectives: Create an open community of hackers, artists, and open source/hardware enthusiasts to create, share, learn, and collaborate. Help spread knowledge to the larger community, especially in the areas of technology, DIY, security, and privacy. Provide a space for creating, collaborations, workshops, and classes. Provide resources (hardware, tools, materials, access, knowledge) to members and the community. Assist other groups that share similar objectives. Seek to enable others, and others' projects; to help break down barriers; and to avoid erecting barriers
