This document is “The List” – it is the direct result of the overwhelming interest in starting Hackerspaces that hit my inbox after co-founding PSOne and HacDC. When so many people asked for help with the very basics of starting and running a successful Hackerspace, I compiled this list to make it as easy as possible for potential Hackerspace founders to hit the ground running (and not forget anything important). Since then, “the list” has been distributed and shared within Hackerspace culture. It has helped with structuring the success of many Hackerspaces – and hopefully with this update and public release, it will serve as a handy go-to checklist for your awesome Hackerspace-to-be.
Feel free to share this widely, print it out for your clipboard, read it on your tablet, and share it with anyone you think could use this checklist to kickstart their Hackerspace aspirations.
For even more elaboration on starting a Hackerspace, I highly recommend that you also read the How To Start A Hackerspace tutorial, which you’ll see me refer to throughout The List.
