Thanks to HacDC for mentioning us on their website! HacDC was one of the first hackerspaces in the United States. A great model for how a hackerspace should be run. Take a look at their wiki as it has a lot of info on the internals of their operation. A learning tool to base our hackerspace on. Other hackerspaces to mention are NoiseBridge, NYC Resistor, and The Hacktory.
I would like to add, the idea of starting a hackerspace in Miami was after attending Nick Farr’s talk “Building Hacker Spaces Everywhere: Your Excuses are Invalid,” Jens Ohlig’s “Hacker Space Design Patterns,” and NYC Resistor’s “A Collaborative Approach to Hardware Hacking” at The Last Hope.
