Funny you should mention that.  When I visited NB back in December to
attend CHM, I didn't see anyone working on any projects either.  There were
a few people using the stove (those people didn't even look like hackers),
a few people on laptops doing their own stuff, and some dude browsing
facebook on the public computer there.  I came before CHM because I needed
some help on a little project I had with an op amp output that I didn't
understand but after asking around, nobody really knew anything about op

I don't think hackerspaces should resemble a museum where people come to
look at art and people's projects on display -- it's a place where people
come and make stuff and meet other people who like making stuff.  The
Hacker Dojo has a robotics club that meets fairly regularly every other day
around 7:30pm.
