I'm wondering if competition is in the spirit of hackerspaces.
Take the demoscene competitions, it's often down to hiding the code to
have an advantage over others.
We are trying to be open and share.
Me personally I already find this quite difficult, being more from the
"invented here, not your's" generation.
So, better no competition but cross-space collaboration.

I see this already happen with arduino based access control systems.
Inspire each one, make it better, give it back.
