[hackerspaces] Out with the "hackers"... In with the "makers" and the "fixers"

Dear lovely internet, debating on the definitions and acceptance of the
terms hackers and makers is not either hacking nor making. Every minute
put into discussing the terms is a minute lost from actually hacking any
of the context or making something more meaningful and globally accepted
of these words. When first being introduced to a self labeled hacker or
maker, I give less than two shits about the hot air coming out of their
mouth, and weigh more heavily on their known legacy, current actions,
and future goals. When that over all amounts to redefining my notion of
hackers and makers, then my friends, that person is doing something
extremely amazing.

I'm going to go camp on a roof now. Bye. :)
