- ... add your own topic here!
Stamping your "hackerspaces passport"
Please remember to bring the stamp of your hackerspace, so that other people can collect more entries in their diplomatic passports :)

I have been taking part in founding the Amsterdam Hackerspace "Technologia Incognita"(http://techinc.nl) since October 2011, and previously being a visitor in ASCII in Amsterdam, 1999-2001 (while it was not called "hackerspace", but cyber-cafe, and part of the squatters movement). I have also taken part in many Eastern-European "new media labs" between 1996 & 2001 (CyberRex in Belgrade, c3 in Budapest, Mama in Zagreb & CyberPipa in Ljubljana), as well as being part of HippiesFromHell since '97. In last two years I visited few other hackerspaces in Europe (Fixme.ch, metalab in Vienna...). I have been volunteering, & giving lectures and workshops at 7 of the camps since '97 (HIP, HAL, WHT, HAR and 3 CCC camps). 28c3 was my first congress. User:Becha
After meeting: notes
The room was pretty crowded and we've used most of our time by presenting ourselves and our spaces -- which left very little time to actually discuss the matters we had to discuss; also, there were at least four different groups talking at the same time. It would be interesting if we summarized what was discussed, or better yet, find some random spot during the congress to continue the discussion.

Ownership of things in the space
- Shackspace labels things with ownership and access rules.
- Ownerhip: personal, use after getting instructions (+ asking), public (+ after instructions)...
"Core group" Pattern
- Should just "keep the room running"
- Ends up taking more responsabilities and
Get members more involved
Get new Members
- Involve a more heterogeneous group: invite people to lightning talks in your space.
- There are groups like Skillhare. Take over their concept?
- Provide services against donations, e.g. fixing things
- Tokyo Hackerspace offers Workshops against a small fee and for free for members
