A major priority of my hackerspace (HSBNE, also the Brisbane Maker Node for Govhack this year) is to make our facilities available to anyone who is interested in creating cool things. Unfortunately, our location is in the centre of an old industrial area (at the beginning of a multi-year urban renewal process) which is not yet well served by public transport, which is a major impediment to many people who rely on that and want to take advantage of our facilities.
