I was recently reminded of the play books (see below) constructed by the folks over at makerspace.com. This was extremely helpful for me when I was opening up an audio-based (makerspace) lab a couple years ago.
And well, I think something like this would be great for the Precious Plastic community. I see it holding some of the following items:
– proper space best practices (minimum sq. footage, ventilation etc.)
– licensing and legal best practices
– funding and investment options/tips (talking to investors, getting donations, etc.)
Maybe it could eventually live at http://spaces.preciousplastic.com. I’ve started a stub page over at http://www.preciousplasticwiki.com/index.php?title=Precious_plastic_shop_playbook. Feel free to start hacking on it.
