hackspace at the public library

"get" space
  [vote for,

A backwards "Beureau of Good Advice" where, instead of "giving" "good advice" to "the troubled", you, "get" "good ideas" from "folks who are just as creative as everyone else, but who are just not necessarily part of the traditional productivity mill -- either because they are not employed, or because they are smart enough to want to spend most of their time browsing the stacks at their local public library." This concept could borrow from hackspaces, hackathons, fab labs, unconferences, crisiscamps, and be a permanent shop located in public library. Inventions and generated income could be looped back into the space.

       So what's the point of avoiding mainstream politics if you're going to die of buzzword overload anyway?

       (Misread the title as "backspace" and expected some kind of rant about how library computers don't have a backspace key.)

       I was typing an important e-mail at the public library when I realized that the backspace key was missing, and a disheveled fellow was holding his jacket open to reveal a number of objects somehow attached to the soiled liner.
