I simply don't think someone renting office space (being extra cynical
here) is a hacker space. It's not member owned and operated, it is
commercially founded and for profit.

The problem is that now, with 3 different places listed in Atlanta, I
fear that it's going to continually expand to the point that someone
actually looking for a hackerspace here won't be able to tell what's

And yes, I believe Freeside is the only ACTUAL hackerspace in atlanta.
I hope that we have more one day, and I welcome it, but Ignition Alley
and other comercial coworking spaces should not be in the hackerspaces
