300 seems like a lot.  Can't have much of a community with that many people.

Yup, agreed.  Something that disappointed me a lot in the last years was
watching all the huge ego trips around some communities.

At least in my country, in a very strange and creepy way, being a member of
a hackerspace became a kind of "status" for some opportunist people.

I always want to die when I need to make some researches to my professors
and read "member of xyz hackerspace" in LinkedIn profiles and CVs.

Most of the times, the "badass proud member" only visited the space once or
twice, and never did anything really interesting and/or useful to the
community, but they are paying for being a member and it's enough.  Sorry,
it's pretty disgusting and very ridiculous in the most of all the cases.

Yes, we need the money, I know, but we also need loyalty to our values,
true love, sincere devotion when searching to build a better, more
beautiful world, a future with less pains and more technologies, more
accessible knowledge to anyone...

At least for me, it would be the most astonishing and pure beauty...
Keeping the sincere hope in a fair world and building it with my
hackerspace's friends.  Well, without forgetting the fun and a little bit
of mess, of course!  :D

Sorry, I love the chaos!  I miss a lot the lovely nighty-nights when my
friends were completely drunk, trying to teach me Crypto, Python, and
Haskell at the same time...  I think I didn't learn anything, but had the
most fun laughs of my life...  It was friendship, true love...  We used to
be a *real* community and I miss it a lot.  <3

PS: - Flo, never trust the snail mail.  God, it's becoming slower than a
dead slug!  Love you, take care!  <3  :****

you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."  -  Mae Jemison
