JS: heard about people planning a space for 
techies and artists to work on their projects 
and there would be a prominent electronic 
group.

JS: to try to build the hope for a space 
that accepted a wide variety of people 
and interests.

JS: Michael Kan's lazer: he teasingly 
claimed he made a lazer out of nothing. 
In fact he put together a microwave 
step up transformer and some wires to 
create an arc within the guide rail 
of an ink jet printer; the arc triggered 
nitrogen atoms in the air in the gap and 
that generated the lazer beam.
