You want to set up a hackerspace in your city alone. You fail.
The rule of thumb is 2 + 2. You need a partner to get the initial idea kicked oﬀ, making two of you. You need two more people in order to get real work done. Don’t start before you are at least four people. From this point it’s easy to recruit more people. Aim for ten people for a start.
