information that I hope to add to hackerspaces.org eventually.

In general, infrastructure should come first. You only need to find a
small handful of people and a place where you can regularly meet and
work cooperatively. The nice thing about Hackerspaces is that every
single one of them is unique, formed from a core idea of a very small
group of people.
