Which 'expertise' areas would you like us to concentrate TinkerMill resources on?

How much would you be willing to pay for classes and workshops?

We're looking at ways to cover our soon to be higher costs of operating once the mall shuts down (likely in May) and our cheap rent ($500 mo for space and utilities) goes away. Raising dues is one way, charging nominal fees for classes and workshops is another. This is a poll to see what you'd be comfortable with paying for classes and workshops. Which would you be most comfortable with? (Please choose only one).

What would you rather be known as: A Hackerspace or a Creatorspace?

It's difficult to explain to people what a hackerspace is. Should we change our name to "TinkerMill, The Longmont Creatorspace" from it's current "TinkerMill, The Longmont Hackerspace"? Argument for Creatorspace: The connotation of hacker has been hijacked and painted in dark hues by the media. It also puts off non technical people (artists, educators, administrators, businesses, governments). To reach more people, a better, friendlier and more descriptive name like Creatorspace should be used instead of Hackerspace. Argument for Hackerspace: We ARE hackers. a Hackerspace is is where you find people like us. Hackers are not bad, they are people who take things apart and put them back together, often better they they were in the first place. Hacker, among many circles, particularly technical circles, is a badge of honor. We're fine with the name and people should change their attitude about it.
