This would be so beautiful. Frantisek's comment is great, coupling
established with the emerging would (I think) help both spaces.
 (Established can help point people in the right direction, emerging can
help keep new ideas flowing)

I don't know how beneficial it would be, and bandwidth can certainly be an
issue, but I like the idea of having a real time video feed from one point
to another. Even if not 24/7, perhaps during established times.'

Being able to connect two or three hackerspaces together seems more likely
to foster a closer relationship than trying to mash all of them together at
once, I just wish we could exchange food easily : )
