I've been thinking the same thing.

There is a "planet" which aggregates hackerspace blogs:


But it is the nature of hackerspace blogs to only have things that
hackerspaces deem worthy of publishing.  How much more cool content
happens in the form of discussions on mailing lists?

Right on.

I have been thinking of setting up a similar aggregator, but for
hackerspace mailing list/forum posts.  The idea is that I have a bot
that signs up to hackerspace mailing lists, then someone trawls
through the posts filtering out the administrivia/excessively local
content, leaving the technical content.  This technical content would
then go to the aggregator in RSS or email form for others to sign up

Passing note: At LCA2010 a bunch of hackerspace people got together
and we created this list:


Alastair was one of those present, and he's on the list, so he's
wanted to reach out for some time too.
