I personally think the definition of hackerspace is *members-run*, and
that we should be filtering by that. (I'd be interested to see if
there are any hackerspaces which aren't members-run.)

I agree that perhaps the best way to do this would be to have a number
of attributes to filter hackerspaces by, so we don't have to keep
deleting spaces which don't meet the criteria.
