[hackerspaces] SpaceAPI Meeting #1: Integrating External APIs

Heya everyone,

A few spaces now have begun to notice some limitations with the existing 
SpaceAPI implementations and want to expand upon it in a properly planned 
fashion and in a way that does not step on the toes of any existing efforts. 
As a result, we have scheduled an IRC meeting to help in this planning. 

Our primary discussion will revolve around the integration of 'external' APIs 
to each SpaceAPI endpoint. For example, we at HeatSync Labs have been working 
on making our Open Access Control system web enabled (currently through a 
desktop connected to the OAC over serial, but soon with an Ethernet Arduino), 
and would like to expose that functionality in a standardised way. We are also 
implementing PAMELA, and a few other external service we would like exposed to 
the hackerspace world. Pumping Station One has a bunch of APIs as well that 
are not currently exposed on SpaceAPI.

If any of this interests you, please stop by! :)
