I think the same things. Philosophy and management style, run by the
people and generally endorses the hacker ethic is also what define, for
me, a hackerspace.

But what append when you are member of a hackerspace but not considered
as a full part of his community because you follow the hacker ethic, you
are not part of his authority circle?

And what to think about this kind of place when their membres have
different right to access the place based on their fortune or poverty?
