A Hackbase or Hackerbase is a Live-in Hackerspace - a hackerspace with a capacity for coliving.

  • everything you would expect from a hackerspace + place to stay (sleep, eat, ...)
  • ... this includes being publicly accessible (via a clear and non-discriminatory process)
  • able to host short or long-term stays
  • residents cover their own costs (which are usually far less than "normal" lifestyles)
  • extension on the practices of sharing already present in hackerspaces
  • hosts hacker Residencies and Exchanges
