Hacker... space. It's a "space"... where people "hack" on their projects. Seems pretty straightforward. The only part that throws people off is the definition of the term "hack," though these days surely we're beyond thinking that's just people who break into computers?

Hackerspaces generally have machine shops, but that's not all they are. They also have lounges, computer labs, biotech labs, kitchens, and whatever else their respective members are interested in.
