*** I guess each hackerspace has a founding event: opening party, first
workshop, public opening, getting the keys, etc. This sounds like the right
date to me, otherwise we get into the mud, as with "who started the
hacker spaces and when?" question. Everyone has an answer, and mine is
earlier than yours, etc. For some reason, people tend to want to be first.
But if they were a bit more attentive to nature, they'd know that too early
is deadly :)


P.S.: they were gathering in caves, trying to reproduce what thunder did on
the trees...
