Stamp Book

  • Shouldn't this be called a Hackspace Stampbook? A passport is defined as "a document, issued by a national government, which certifies, for the purpose of international travel, the identity and nationality of its holder." A Hackerspace passport should be defined as "a document, issued by a Hackerspace, which certifies, for the purpose of inter-Hackerspace travel, the identity and home Hackerspace of its holder." This information should then be used to validate the holder, giving them a reputation to uphold for themselves and their Hackerspace. --JimShoe 18:33, 1 August 2011 (UTC) (Makers Local 256)
I don't mind the passport part, but "diplomatic" makes it look like something it really isn't. "Hackerspace Passport" would be more to the point. also inside you obviously put visitor stamps and not visas. It would be nice to have a document that presents what it is and does not pretend to be something else.--eMBee 4:34, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

  • for those of us in the dark end of the hacker universe, would you be interested in sharing what materials/methods you use to craft these so that we can develop a certain level of uniformity between hackerspaces. I'm trying to get some put together for the OHM hackerspace here but would like to be of a comparable quality.
