DHMN News Network

Here are all the local maker space RSS feeds collected into one giant RSS feed, plus I threw in the “Make” and “Hack A Day” RSS feeds for good measure. Leave a comment if there’s any feed you think I should add. Perhaps the DHMN could add these RSS feeds directly into this website.

(P.S. It’s a brand new feed so all the articles are bunched up together right now, but it will settle down into something more useful in time.)
