[EMS Discuss] Lets schedule a time when we can all check out the 1010 Tyinn space!

Hi Sam,

Yes Having a chunk of personal storage  or floor space is certainly 
something that many Hackerspaces provide and something I am all for, and 
I think that we as a board are close to working out the rates for that.

I am also excited about the possibility of renting some or all of any 
office space. As Rick alluded to there are some legal constraints that 
we must be careful about, but from what I've learned so far they are 
easy to satisfy.
