[hackerspaces] one question

Approximately 1-kabillion hours of time are saved each year by someone
turning around and asking a friend 'hey, I can't find any solution on the
web for this problem.  Do you have any ideas?' It's also called 'brain
storming', 'teamwork', and 'coordination'.

But seriously, the biggest part of hacker community is people. If you have
too many friends, and know everything (or can find everything on google) I
don't think hackerspaces are of most use.  But a lot of people like friends,
physically hanging out, and sometimes can't solve a problem or invent an
idea on their own. Hence: social systems like hackerspaces, ACM, and IEEE.

(Re-reading that, I hope it comes off firendly and joking, which is the
spirit. I'm not being sarcastic, just genuine and naive).

comic books and hack on,
