This page is to help define a Statement of Purpose for the group. The idea is to explain what a makerspace is, how it is used, and what this group wants to accomplish with it. This is useful for explaining our intentions to folks who otherwise have never heard of makerspaces/hackerspaces (potential financiers, landlords, civic officials etc). Maybe this should be called 'Statement of Vision' or something... Basically a single sheet similar to the Noisebridge Vision.
