I spent a fair amount of time yesterday flipping through the collected bylaws of some of the more prominent Hackerspaces on the website http://hackerspaces.org (a phenomenal resource btw for up and coming spaces). I am struggling with defining a couple of terms.
1. What is the difference between a hackerspace and a makerspace? Is one more experimental while the other is geared more towards satisfying hobbyists and hardware startups?
2. What defines a public versus a private space? If regular, ongoing access is restricted by membership but the space offers public classes and events open to the public, is it public or private?
