New Jersey Hackerspaces/Makerspaces

This is a list of NJ Makerspaces or Makerspaces nearby to NJ (NY & Philly for example). For now it's a small list but I have a longer list to add. I just need to get it properly formatted.

Hackerspace/Makerspace is really about people. People of different backgrounds sharing their knowledge with others. The debate on whether to call it a Hackerspace or a Makerspace will be on going. Most spaces avoid the name hackerspace because of it's assocaition with illegal computer related activities. Most spaces won't allow such activities. But a hackerspace is a makerspace, probably the only difference is a hackspace tends to encourage "Hey look what I found, what can we do with it? How about hit it with a rock and see what happens? (Yes, that was a Galaxy Quest reference). All spaces encourage people working collaboratively together. Even people working on there own projects can pick the brains of the other people in the space.
