So, there are a lot of Linux folks who seem to be interested in a
hacking space as well.  My short term apartment in Nob Hill is ending
December 31st, and I would like to set up a new space similar to the
old HHH/l0pht, where I (and others) live/sleep, but there is never a
dull moment with a plethora of interesting people coming in and out.

1) How do I find such people who will want to live there?
2) How many are necessary to sustain a good environment?
3) General best locations in/out of the city?
4) How to raise money for projects/activities/rent/parties?
5) How to prevent fraud/illegal misuse of the hacker space?

Anything else I am missing?
