The members of 57North Hacklab maintain infrastructure projects that help with the day-to-day running of the space, such as providing network access, telephony and web services.
Some of the things we run are considered to be required for the space to function and are listed under the Core Infrastructure section, others are provided on a best effort basis and we're not going to panic if they break.
“There is only one service provider whose interests are directly aligned with your own, yourself!”
Some things are required for the space to function properly. The things in this section are on that list.
If anything on this list isn't working please let us know (loudly).
