I was introduced to alternative workspaces like the ASCII squat in the 
early 2000's. The Amsterdam Subversive Centre for Information 
Interchange was an anarchist infoshop & internet cafe. I thought it was 
one of the fucking coolest thing ever. A place to teach and be taught, 
share ideas & information outside of traditional schooling (which I had 
long dropped out of).

I continued reading about spaces like c-base and Hacker Houses, and 
eventually when the 'hackerspace' term caught on, I dove right in and 
didn't look back.

I still think they're one of the fucking coolest things ever.
