I agree at point 3 here. Get out of your comfort zone, broaden the 
perspective of what a hacker or a maker is.

One of our hackerspaces has an amazing poster to attract visitors. It's 
called "Not only for geeks" and it sums up 36 different kind of geeks, 
from software and soldering to photography, music and typography to 
cooking, books and even aquariums. Unfortunately it's in Dutch otherwise 
I would attached it to this message.
