[hackerspaces] Hackerspaces away from the city

  Black Lodge Research is in Redmond, which is a suburb about a half hour
outside Seattle.

Then again, Redmond is not your usual suburb.

Subject: [hackerspaces] Hackerspaces away from the city

Since I can't drive and live no where near a hackerspace I've been trying to

start one in the Village I live in[1]. The thing is though that everything I

have seen on hackerspaces via the net so far has been very city centric[2].
Has there been any well established hacker spaces in small towns or rural
areas before? Would this make a great difference?

[1]Amberley, New Zealand. It's the main village of Hurunui district, big
enough to have an actual high street (including a computer store) but half
hour from the nearest bus stop.

[2]This isn't entirely true. There is a blog about a hypothetical hacking
orientated farming commune but that's a little extreme for me.
