New location! The OMNI 4799 Shattuck Avenue (near Creative Reuse) [see instructions below]
Sudo Room is a hackerspace & creative community that has open membership, and is non-hierarchical and collaborative. We are all types: tech developers, citizen scientists, activists, artists, and all combinations in between and beyond. But most importantly: we are all human beings interested in and working towards positive social change. Our goal is to be an inclusive, community hackerspace in North Oakland!
Anyone is welcome at Sudo Room - whether or not they are members, "technical" or "not-super-duper technical," and whether or not they know what they want to explore or learn. Are you a human? You belong! We work together, help each other, and are all learning.

During the summer and fall of 2012, visitors to sudo room were forgiven for confusing it with a psychic palm reading business.
It was literally a room -- a tiny, tiny room. There was some common space in the area, though: tables, outlets, wifi, etc.
