A hacklab is a community-run physical space, rather than a group like 
GLLUG, with facilities that can be used by any relevent parties.

See http://hackerspaces.org/ for much more detail, and a list of 
hacklabs around the world.

And below, the announcement posted to the ORG group, which explains 
things more fluently.



For some time now London has been in need of a proper hacker space. The 
number of hacking
groups has exploded over the last year or so with new events popping up 
every weekend.
Despite this we're still missing a meeting place, a place where we can 
store projects
and share ideas. Where we can meet like minded people who share our 
passions. Where we can
learn new skills without making a significant investment.

We'd like to change that, but we need people to help.

If you're interested, we've set up a preliminary mailing list on google 
groups where we can
gather. It's just temporary until we come up with a name and have more 
solid foundations.
