besides the option of paying  members and the one of sponsoring, there
is also the option of squatting a place, that is occupy an empty space
in the  city and declare it liberated  for the use of  a community. no
money involved.

let's try  to elaborate  more on the  lines of "urban  hacking", while
squatting is a lot about processing information :)

we are doing that in Amsterdam  and is quite succesful, we even have a
BIG new  space that  hellekin is just  visiting these  days.  actually
many of us are from Poland, i think you should really meet some of the
polish speaking squatters' linux user group members :)

anyone planning to come over, let me know
