In Dutch history, there is a connection between squatters 
movement/legislation & early hackerspaces (before they were called that 
way) , and also a connection between other counter-cultures movements & 
hackers (hippies, anarchists...)

Dorien Zadbergen wrote about the digital activism of the two 
hackergroups ASCII and the Genderchangers in Amsterdam squats.

Dorien Zadbergen also wrote about hackers & Silicon Valley: 

Plus, there is a movie about Hippies From Hell:



I have collected many links about hackerspaces here:

I wrote  about European hackerspaces I was visiting while organising 
"hackerspace tours"



And about differences between East-Europe & West-Europe hackerspaces...

And then there are more  articles about Detroit & hackers ;-)

  * Five ways hackers can build better cities -- from -- World Economic
    Forum in Davos !


And I am copying Patrice, who is a living legend & an unofficial 
historian of hackers movement... who might be able to add some more 
wisdom about the early days.
