AccuJack: What I've noticed is that "anarchist hacker spaces" either are lying and there's a cabal of some sort in control, or they're really anarchist and people do whatever they like, possibly to the detriment of others. Nothing wrong with the cabal organization if they're open and honest about it, but usually they sell people on the idea that it's a utopian group. That's fine if you agree with what the group in control does, but god help you if you don't."No government" also means no rules to keep people from stepping on you, no guaranteed rights like a fair hearing or storage space of your own, and the majority of members can kick you out if they don't like you, even if the reason they don't like you is that you're black or a lesbian.It's too bad, because a minimal amount of governance and organization would let a lot of these places go far, if the members weren't so against "the man".If you're a business student, these things are interesting to watch, because typically the people running them assume they're too smart to build their organization using standard business rules and practices, then they go out and make every single mistake in the book without even recognizing that they're operating just like every other "unique" small business that's tried to exist.
