i am not sure if hackerspaces will be around in 5-10 years, actually.
and it takes 3-5 years to garner enough reputation for a journal to
make it worthwhile publishing in it, from an academic perspective.  i
would also be afraid to make a ghetto with our own publication rather
than trying to talk to other scientists in the already too overcrowded
academic journal land.  besides, the journal of peer production just
started and has many hackerspace / open hardware researchers on board.
i find that context interesting as a theoretical framework as well.
