I co-founded [[Hackuarium]] with [[User:luchenry|Luc Henry]] in February 2014. We met Carmelo and his boss, and made [[UniverCité]] the home for this project in May 2014, being the first pioneers to become residents. The association itself was created in Aug. 2014. Which means we still are a really young community doing mistakes (young) communities do. Luc is since the beginning of the association the President of Hackuarium, and I serve as Vice-President. Our other [http://wiki.hackuarium.ch/index.php?title=Board Board members and their current responsibilities should be listed here at some point].<br>
