We are looking into how to do a more social space. Ben Crox is looking into this, and we will see if it is possible to do this as part of BootHK.
I initially looked into this, but making it break even will be difficult. I think we will expand both by opening new locations and by "franchising" existing facilities. This is a possibility with university facilities or some private facilities that I'm in contact with.

That'd be great. I'd be far more interested in a hackerspace or a
sort of social co-op techshop or something than I would something that
revolves around obsessing about business. I just want to make cool
stuff and hang out with other people who do the same thing. I dunno-
I'm hanging out in San Francisco at the moment, so I'm a bit spoiled-
a few different hackerspaces, a techshop chain, and a really cool
industrial art space all in the same city with a bunch of really
creative, really talented and motivated people. We out number the
denizens of the Bay Area, so we must have at least enough people to
get something started.

At the moment, I'm not aware of anything so comprehensive as techshop
here. If I had the funds, I'd consider doing something like that.
We've just opened the first BootHK location, and I think we will be
looking at future expansion soon if this facility turns over well.
One item that I'm looking at with potential for a more workshop like
space would be doing something out in one of the old industrial areas
Kowloon side, but I would guess that is at least 1-2 years out. This
may be tied to commercial art as a way of making it viable.
