 +We have different ways of describing what this is and who we are. \\
 +In plainspeak, #hack66 is an innovation centre/​hackerspace hybrid that is only just beginning to take form, <​del>​with real-space premises at the [[http://​www.artosfoundation.org/​index.htm|Artos Cultural and Research Foundation]]</​del>,​ in Nicosia Cyprus. It is open and welcoming to all, providing infrastructure and collaboration opportunities for anyone interested in programming,​ hardware, crafts, science, robotics, halloumi, art, and technology. ​ We teach, we learn, and we share openly, with no leaders. Following the hackerspace spirit, we have one rule: **Be excellent to each other**.\\
