Sorry for being the devil's advocate why not having an open access wireless
network? An hackerspace should be a space where everyone should have
to technology and even Internet? what are really the risks to have an open
access point? It could be even a nice experiment for a hackerspace to run
an open network and see if those risks tend to be confirmed or not.

Just my humble input,

Kind regards,
