what makes hackspaces different?
i think the fundamental question first is:
why do you obviously see such locations/organisations as 'needs to make
a profit' like e.g. a 'business'?
most locations i know are 'making things possible'-style, pragmatic
designed concepts which result not out of a business model, but out of a
demand for space to be creative in.
and yes, that costs money. thats why one has memberships or some other
way to come up with rent/electricity-money.
so from my pov the business-model is a result of a more or less specific
demand, not the other way around.
also things change. members come and go. people move. business happens
or changes. one has to adapt.
welcome to a society of people not hiding behind curtains of 'thats how
we have done it since before my grandpa'-thinking.
congrats to bucketworks for making things work out :)
kind regards and greetings from berlin, old europe
