Another situation is where you have more than one hackerspace in the
same area. Right now I'm a member of two groups (only one of which has a
space right now). It's expensive to pay dues to both, but right now both
groups need the money, so I'd hesitate to ask for a discount (that might
change in the future, when both groups are more established). When they
both have actual spaces, they'll have different capabilities.
