This reminds me of the SpacePhone project I was trying to get started.
Basically like the Jetsons each hackerspace would have a dedicated
PC/laptop with a web cam and speakers/mic where they could click the
logo/name of a space with a SpacePhone and it would "ring" (with giant
spinning lights if they want!) so each space could easily make video calls
to each other to work on joint projects or ask quick questions, etc.
We could even add a tag to the Space API to show if the space has a
SpacePhone: true|false.
