|Hi, I live in Manchester, UK. More specifically, I live in Irlam, a pretty obscure town within Greater Manchester. This would be great, if there were many people interested in tech. The closest I've come to is a friend-of-a-friend web developer but outside of that, I've not heard of anyone within my physical social network.|
Needless to say, I feel pretty lonely.
One of the main solutions I can see is to go out to Hackspaces and just get stuck in. I tell myself I'm going to go but I never bring myself to do it. I can be quite shy and I'm pretty frightened. For example, how do I know if I'm good/smart enough to go?
I don't know, I was just wondering if anyone could help me out here and potentially give a second perspective or something. I just generally feel like I'd be much happier with a few like-minded friends rather than ones that can't do much more than turn a computer on and use Facebook.
