The Hackerspaces Manual is a living document originally created by psytek, from Alpha One Labs, and LekoGM, formerly of NLON Labs and currently from NESIT, to help aid in the creation as well as basic standardization of hackerspaces around the globe.
The premise for the creation of this document was to update the design patterns on hackerspaces.org and make help make it easier for spaces to be created and sustained. From there the document evolved rapidly into what you see now. In the coming days, weeks, months, and/or years, we hope to get this outline into an actual manual.
