From the intro:
A group of American hackers visited hacker spaces in Germany
They wanted to know how our European hacker spaces work
After the Camp they visited a couple of hacker spaces
Every hacker space did a presentation about their history
We created some Design Patterns
I know Bre Petis of NYCResistor is working on a book on hacker spaces, but its not out yet.
Anyone know of other resources or accounts of hacker spaces getting started - probably a good idea to learn from the experiences and/or mistakes of others rather than repeating them.
