When I think of Fab Lab I think of the commercial version of a Hackerspace.
Although it would be non-profit would it also be inexpensive? I'm all for
creating a network of Hackerspaces. But I don't feel educated enough to
write congressmen in support of this bill. I don't think know the people
behind the bill. How can I be sure they have my best interest in mind and
are not trying to make 7 figure living through this "non-profit" like many
do in other non-profits in our country. How can I be sure this is really
about the science and technology and not about money? I would need to be
better educated before making a decision.
