    1. from portland…. omfg…. it will end up somewhere over hawthorne or se foster in some house with 15 people… do not miss portland and bad idea. the bike program was a disgrace. bet controlled voltage will be seeing a spike ofpeople wanting to trade or sell gear.

    2. If that were a problem, wouldn’t it be a no-brainer problem to fix by just requiring a deposit, credit card, etc?

      The concern I’d have would be that there’d be wear and tear over time so I wonder how they can cover repairs.

      It takes cool people figuring out solutions to these issues to make cool things like this lending library happen.

  1. I’m sorry w are you people on about? There are lending libraries in cities all over. It’s a fantastic idea worthy of support – for so many reasons. I don’t get (but I think I do) the negative comments. Find a local one of these and maybe donate a synth or module to them?

  2. Vancouver (BC) has a cool video lab and they lend out musical instruments too.
    What else are we going to spend our public money on – bombs? idle politicians?
