@John lowering that barrier can do alot for the industry. This seems to be a unique aproach.

... and that erosion is to everyone's benefit. Students work on real stuff from the git-go; commercial developers don't get to just build, but have to do some explaining at every stage. Given how high the academic/commercial barrier has traditionally been in Continental Europe, the Swiss are getting a huge advantage here.

Re: Swiss Hackerspace
This is really a tangent - when I was a kid, I didn't realize there was a difference between the NBA and college teams and wondered what was going to happen to the teams when Patrick Ewing and Larry Bird graduated!

Re: Swiss Hackerspace
faryl,

And better still, where the best students don't "graduate" and take off; they keep coming back to play at a higher level with more people. Yes, it sounds like a really cool place to work/study/create.

Swiss Hackerspace
That's really cool - it reminds me of some of the shared hackerspaces we have here. It's kind of like an "industrial arts" room for grown-ups with way more fun tools to use!
