I'm wondering if it's time to put together a statewide Hackerspace Council of sorts.
We've got at least 5 hackerspaces in the front range (3 in place, 2 forming), all reasonably close to each other.
TinkerMill in Longmont
Solid State Depot in Boulder
Denhac in North Denver
The Concoctory in South Denver
Loveland Creativespace in Loveland
What if we all talked to each other and pooled our resources? Made it possible to share spaces (someone from Denver's in Boulder for the day and could use a table and internet access to work from: drop by SSD! Or if someone from Boulder's in Longmont for the day and needs a 3D printer for a couple of hours, drop by TinkerMill! That kind of thing).
I wonder if it's time for that?
