“Be Excellent to Each Other”

Here’s a nice clip on hackerspaces — Science on the SPOT: Open Source Creativity: Hackerspaces — from Mitch Altman at the San Francisco Hackerspace, Noisebridge. “We have one rule and one rule only: Be excellent to each other.” How’s that for an elegant governance model for a community? It doesn’t have to be complex. It just has to work. There are about a thousand hackerspaces around the world with a couple here in Japan. I’m friendly with the Tokyo Hackerspace. Nice guys. Dale Dougherty mentions hackerspaces in his TED Talk on Makers, too.
