I really like the idea, but would wish the space to be more than
temporary, for a Resource Center to become a permanent thing, or a
semi-permanent arrangement with a space that can easily be
re-organised. I really miss having the space available to Limehouse
Town Hall, just to throw things and people together in and see what
works. I think persistent space is absolutely the necessary thing for
a peer-based education process.
