About two months ago I was banned from SYNHAK the hackerspace we started in Akron, Ohio. I wrote a post about it on Medium
Since the posting of that medium article, it has spurned a good deal of discussion on hackerspaces.org. Most of it has been positive and other spaces have learned valuable lessons from the events that unfolded.
Essentially, the culture of a hackerspace is key to its long-term survival as a hackerspace.
