hands up here. cheers.

it feels like this mailinglist join different planets: maybe we should
look for  the (un)common ground  before anything else,  something that
hasn't  been  done  yet,  just  a  need  circulated  by  some  belated
complaints (mine included) and apparently still ignored.

some of us  here know how hackerspaces (and/OR?   hacklabs) have grown
and developed in  the past 10 and more years:  concerns like these are
far  out from  what has  been  so far,  for lack  of resources  and/or
political reasons is my guess.

still,  i'm definitely  not against  having such  discussions,  as any
other discussion  here, whenever they respect differences,  but i urge
acknowledgement  that  some methods  and  needs  (as  in "we  need  an
insurance") are peculiar cases rather than shared praxis.
