ABOUT

GeeksOK, located in Davenport OK is a community of education, technology, and creativity enthusiasts united by hobby, entertainment, and professional interest. The group has grown to incorporate many ideas of computers, sustainability, social justice, and artistic works. If you are interested, we are always seeking to expand our group and learn about new, cool projects. Anyone willing to spread the geekage can contact us.

MEMBERSHIP

GeeksOK is a private hackerspace so new members must be approved by majority vote. GeeksOK follows the OWNER model of hackerspaces and as such the Owners Board reserves final approval decisions. Since it was founded in 2006 GeeksOK members have been meeting in one of the member's home shop. During 2011 GeeksOK acquired a new home with Route 66 frontage and a much larger space. This means more overhead; therefore starting in mid 2012 GeeksOk will be charging for membership. Members are free to work on projects that earn themselves money and prestige. Many of our members cooperate on projects and enjoy the benefits of networking and business incubation. When members succeed we all succeed.

COST OF MEMBERSHIP

Regular Membership - 25.00 per month


We want interested persons to be able to participate, therefore arrangements may be available to work for dues or to make in kind donations.
