The Dresden chapter of CCC is an awesome little community with great
hackers, and great projects. But they're a very small group, and would
benefit from a much larger space that, unfortunately, they cannot
afford--rent in Dresden is pretty high, and they currently benefit from
a zero EURO electricity bill that's difficult to beat.

I suggested that they could share that concern with the rest of the
community to see whether they can get help finding the financial
resources to expand their available working space. I believe a
Hackerspaces Foundation could help in that kind of situations.

*** Given the endless argument on this list about hackerspaces /
hacklabs / makerspaces / etc., I wonder how we can reach a consensus on
such uniform standards. That's an interesting challenge, and Mark
Janssen might hold part of the answer with his game.
