Lecture: How to run an unstructured organization

How the hack the hackerspace manifesto saved us all

When Hackerspace Ghent was on the brink of collapse because of internal conflict, we started the "hack the hackerspace" workshops to figure out how to run a hackerspace. Out of these workshops grew the "Hack the hackerspace manifesto", an elaborate document describing how to run an organization using do-ocracy.

For the past five years, our hackerspace has lived by these rules and gradually improved the manifesto when we encounter problems. This talk will explain the do-ocratic system described in the manifesto and reflect back on the past five years of success and failure running an organization according to this manifesto.
