I just found out about the conference and its hackerspace element via Reddit. How did I miss this up until now?
The hackerspace idea is obviously one I’m interested in. I have my own proposal for one, but tailored less of a 24-hour space for random hacking encounters, and more as an un-office to give remote-working people an in-person community of peers.
Definitely we have all realized that as great as online interaction can be, being in a room still cannot be duplicated.
