You have found the perfect hackerspace, but the landlord seems to be weird. Also, the neighbours are picky.


Choose wisely. A benevolent,but uninterested landlord and cool neighbours can be the decisive reasons why the hackerspace takes off or not. Not so cool neighbours may call the cops at 2AM. Depending on your projects, this may be a serious problem. As hackers you do not live the majority lifestyle — look for neighbours who are also weird and outside the majority.
