[hackerspaces] Vetting new members

at /tmp/lab, we are heavily thinking of keeping addicts and criminals  
OUT of the lab at _any_ cost...

addicts to TV, who need their daily dose of drama and braindead programs
addicts to passiveness, who scorn at people who are a bit "too much"  
and who have many projects
criminals of not thinking what they say, and not saying what they think
snobbish criminals who eat energy of other members and downplay ideas

ahahhaha... definition and antagony, oh my goat, what a beautiful  
world we live in

We often say, "well, c'mon, rob the lab, anyway everything in there  
has been more or less recycled and donated to us, so there's not much  
of real value in it...".
Of course, that would be a pain.

Actually, I think that at some point, some rules or way of thinking  
or cultural DNA will not suit some people, and there, we say "Cool,  
you should start your own hacker space then, we can help!"
and that is great. Do NOT GROW, SPREAD.

So, like living cells, divide, multiply, mutate.

Mitosis is good.

Love to all,

PS: on the other hand, mycosis is bad. Who's going to wash the shower  
this time???
