    Strange topic for SYN/HAK

    I am sure this is a very interesting "discussion", and I have no reason to doubt Robert Gibbs' extensive knowledge on the topic. However, is this lecture in line with the SYN/HAK purpose?

    Open Source: "Open" could be applied, loosely.
    Do It Yourself: Don't think so. Don't want to go there.
    Hackerspace: Nah
    Hacking: Nope
    Makers: Only if there will be training in painting and technique
    Makerspace: Don't think so.

    Have fun.... I will wait for the movie to come out.
