Ting Makerspace

Welcome to the Makerspace

At Ting, we like to think of makerspaces as physical embodiments of the principles of the Internet.

A makerspace is a lot of things. It’s a community space where you’ll meet like-minded people. It’s a tool library where you can try out the latest technology. Most of all, it’s a place where ideas, inventions and innovations come to life.

At Ting, we’re big believers in all things makerspace. That’s why we opened our very own Ting Makerspace in Westmisnter, MD. Check out the launch party and learn more about the Ting Makerspace in the video below.

Internet service from Ting

Meet Jason

Jason Dixon has been interested in Ting since before we officially opened our doors here in Westminster. He discovered us while working at a local café. After noticing a Ting sticker on one of our laptops, he looked us up online and decided to come over and ask if we were bringing our Internet service to Westminster’s fiber network. Surprised, we told him we were and since then he’d been counting down the days until he could sign up.

Westminster construction update: what we’ve been up to and where we’re headed next

Westminster construction update

This post will catch you up on the construction status of the fiber network in Westminster and let you know what areas can currently get crazy fast fiber Internet from Ting.

Ting completed constructing, installing and lighting of a new a new redundant backhaul connection for the Westminster Fiber Network.

A redundant backhaul connection is basically an alternate route to the larger Internet. It’s what will prevent unavoidable infrastructure issues (like an accidentally severed line) by providing a detour that Internet traffic can use. A redundant backhaul accepts the overflow in the case the main highway is closed because of an accident.

Rapid prototyping: 3D printers can do that

What is rapid prototyping?

Prototyping a product used to take months and cost tens of thousands of dollars. 3D printers, like you might find in a local makerspace or even a library, cut that down to hours and pennies.

When businesses are coming up with new design ideas or product, they often look to prototypes and scale models to test out their vision in the real world. While advanced, manufacturer-ready prototypes still cost a lot in terms of dollars and days. 3D printers have made rapid prototyping and creating proof of concept scale models accessible to even the most bootstrapped startup, student or budding artist.

Even with today’s admittedly rudimentary 3D “consumer level” printing technology, a model or a part can be turned from a digital design into a physical thing quickly and for just a few cents per gram of media needed to print. Quick real-world testing helps refine the design and planning phases of the product cycle, whatever the 3D printed model may be.

Starting an online business: why you should build an online presence

Starting an online business

We’re lucky to be part of a generation where we can experiment with business ideas and endeavors with relative ease and minimal start-up capital. The resources available for starting an online business and getting it up and running are abundant.

When your business is online there is no need to look for the ideal location within set budget constraints. Much of the start-up stress of setting up a business disappear.

That’s part of the magic of building businesses online. It can often be virtually free or much cheaper than opening and operating a traditional bricks and mortar business.

Here’s just a few reasons why you should consider starting an online business and how to begin building an online presence.

Ting WorksFostering an arts community in Charlottesville

Charlottesville is a city that lives and breathes art. Charlottesville galleries, exhibitions, theaters and venues play host to emerging and established artists alike and the programming rivals any major metropolis.

So, what makes the arts in Charlottesville so great? New City Arts Initiative Executive Director, Maureen Brondyke would tell you its all about the thriving, rich artistic community. Connection, networks and support systems have allowed artists, and the arts, to flourish in Charlottesville. At the center of this network you’ll find New City Arts Initiative and all the important work they do.

The New City Arts offices, studio and Welcome Gallery, are located just off the historic Downtown Mall. Out of these facilities, New City Arts hosts educational experiences, acts as a supportive network for artists and is a resource to help artists learn, work and make a living.
