This is a conversation we have about once a year. (sometimes more) At
this point 3+ years in- our name has been out there a while and I
think for that reason (and others) Changing the name now would be a
bad option. The time to rename ourselves has come and gone I believe.
I am sure others might disagree but we have been mentioned in
Hackerspaces around the world as Tokyohackerspace. we have been on
Boing Boing, and at MAKE and in MAKE magazine and in books, and
magazines, and websites. I think we need to SHOW not tell people who
and what we are. And explaining the term hackers is a great
conversation started anyway.
