ontology is hard, let's go shopping

if we're going for a classification system that can disambiguate
overlapping names in different categories, i'd say we go for
full-blown dewey decimal from the start.
either the domain names are so complicated that you can't type them
anyway, or you' won't consistent namespace.

personally i just use search engines these days (type "laramie wyoming
hackerspace"(s.org) in chrome but without the dots)

null-labs.hs.net should be active within the hour. if there are more
requests like this i'll change the NS to the hackerspaces.org
server(s) - that is, if one of the existing or future hs.org admins
wants to set up the required dns servers to answer queries so that ppl
other than me can add A records.
