How about "Hackerspaces, a year-in-review," with a panel of
people from hackerspaces that actually turned out some good
projects, progress on a project, etc.  Tangible stuff, or at
least something new and exciting if it is intangible.  Less "we
are thinking about..." and more of "we have accomplished."

That way, people learn about hackerspaces indirectly, as in
"this is what gets done at these spaces" rather than
"zomg we have a hackerspace, you can too, here's how."


N.B. I don't have a hackerspace (yet).
