don't worry, I've fixed that already.

Read http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Editing_pages for the first steps
on Mediawiki, the software behind Wikipedia.

There are some forms available on hackerspaces.org that help to keep the
editing simple once the page has been created.

see http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Initlab 
(and http://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Init_lab redirects to it)

there is no single right solution, I've already pointed you to
last week. Don't know if you had time to watch the video. There
one gets an idea about some different flavours.

There will be a book on hackerspaces, it was targeted to get it on
dead trees until the 25C3 but I don't know about the current state.

BTW, there was a short thread on the nettime list

.nl has a special situation regarding house squatting and a long history
on temporary free spaces

Often support of privacy and digital rights are topics around hackerspaces.
I know a nice, capable guy from http://www.isoc.bg/ who also organizes the 
http://bg.bigbrotherawards.org/ - maybe you want to chat with Veni without
any commitment about mutual support, just let me know.
