It's really exciting to see that one article can spark so much activity.  :)  Congrats on starting a space pk!  It will be way wonderful to see some spaces happening in Australia.



Getting podcasts up is a really good idea!  I'd love to start doing podcasts, but at this point in time I have way too much going on (getting four products manufactured, plus lots of stuff at Noisebridge, plus lots of travel for talks and workshops).  But maybe Eric could do some podcasts along with his blogs?

Here's some other feedback for you.

I'd been toying with the idea for a few years now as there's no Hackerspaces here at all (Australia).

The day the Wired article came out.. an Australian hackerspace popped up in planning.. which motivated me to get my idea rolling too.. so I started one up in planning.

By the end of the day there were 4 planned hackerspaces in Australia and one more in New Zealand.

I also suggest that some hackerspaces.org spokesperson (Mitch?, or whoever is appropriate) get some some podcasts.
I suggested to Christel from Freenode that they do a feature on #hackerspaces and hackerspaces in general. I think many podcasts would jump on the idea to interview someone about hackerspaces.

The beauty of it is the more publicity hackerspaces.org gets, the more publicity everyone gets. And for the cities with just one or no hackerspaces.. that's nothing but good news :)

Thanks guys,
