Keep the hacker space alive and thriving

Following a call from José Luis Vicente in his Technopolis blog, we at Mecenato – frequent visitors of the space when we're in town – would like to dedicate our support for their cause by helping to spread the word. MediaLab Prado, an open and free hacker space, is risking displacement due to corporate interests in the building that they occupy in Central Madrid. The site has been recently expanded through public fund investment. However, the new facility, which enjoys a great location in town, has attracted the interest of corporate players. The cause is clear: we all want MediaLab Prado to fully enjoy its newly reformed site, for many years to come.

If you don't know the place, check it out. If you do know it, help by spreading the word too.
