I think this idea is a classic good one and seems like a practical idea that should of been thought of years ago.

@tayler2412 There are already existing wiki-based lists of such places. For eg https://wiki.hackerspaces.org/Li... lists Hackerspaces across the world.

@tayler2412 they also mention on their site in the 'About' section that it is not a new idea :)

No surprise I'm a fan of this project, given I'm one of the co-founders of @gethorizonapp, a hospitality exchange platform for groups (unlock code for Product Hunt: #ph2015). Hope to see HackerCouch get some traction.

@drewmeyers are you congratulating HC or shilling your own stuff?

@thejeremycarson I'm a huge fan of anyone working on hospitality exchanges. The mixture of travel and community is an extremely powerful thing, as Couchsurfing has proved over the past 10+ years. I think Hacker Couch is a great project, and hope to see it succeed.

Love the notion of people submitting couches need to make PRs through GitHub. Good filter on actual hackers housing jackets

Great idea. I don't know any bad people who can file pull requests. =P

@yu_angela Its actually been a pretty good filter so far. I seeded the community with friends I know, announcing it at hackbeach.in, and even now its going pretty well. We don't even use nofollow for eg, and don't expect to have a spam problem anytime soon, since all added content is vetted by someone before the merge.
