As Job points out, Proxxi != Abbenay. Also Proxxi is more than a board
game club, the place also hosts an Amiga club, people often discuss
UNIX and occasionally there are electronics workshops.
Also I'd like to express a slight disapproval of the notion of Abbenay
being Sweden's first hackerspace, which I think is slightly arrogant
actually. While it might be technically true that Abbenay was created
specifically to be a hackerspace and was the first space to be added
to the list, I can think of three places off the top of my hand that
would probably qualify. Proxxi, as mentioned. And then Stacken and
Elab. (Both student clubs at KTH, Royal Institute of Technology in
Stockholm) Stacken is the club for the CS section whereas Elab is the
club for the EE section. Both have existed for at least 1.5 decades. I
know the question of adding both these places as a hackerspace been up
for discussion, but apparently neither one actually got it done.
But let's ask ourselves, is the definition of a hackerspace in the
spirit of the activity going on there or in whether it's added to a
Of course, Abbenay is still undoubtedly a cool place, just not the first one.
