Social Network Hackerspaces? Answered


Hackerspaces have gotten pretty popular among makers across the world. They are a great place to borrow tools and share knowledge. But what about people that don't have local hackerspaces? The solution: social network. Digital hackerspaces! Great for people that don't have physical buildings, or can't afford to round one up.  If you think about it, that's what instructables is! The idea is to have video chat and forums to share knowledge for projects. If you guys would voice your ideas, that would be great!

You said it - Instructables *is* a digital hackerspace.

We have forums, and I don't think we need video chat as part of the site. If you're desperate, you can swap Skype details with members.

Nah, I wouldn't be able to work and chat, since my workspace isn't big enough for both laptop and project at the same time.
