The rest of the article simply discusses common expenses to commercial 
real estate spaces that have tools in them, and then common types of 
income (and examples of uncommon types of income) for spaces that have 
tools in them. In the U.S. at least, almost all hackerspaces have some 
significant inclusion of tools in their layout. If the resulting 
expenses and income from operating in such commercial spaces aren't 
relevant, I'm not really sure what would be.
