To be clear, I used the word "potential competitor" because I couldn't 
come up with a better phrase.  I did that page mainly because the only 
other place I ever hear in the same breath as Noisebridge is TechShop. 
It's worth pointing out the differences so that potential new people to 
Noisebridge have a better understanding of what we have to offer.

Looking at the list, I notice that we have both a darkroom and a 
kitchen, neither of which is apparently available at TechShop.
