Date First Discussed Proposed By Wording Author of this Record
3/13/2012 Gavin Fiscal Sponsorhip of zine. We receive adequate donations but we want them to be tax deductible, and potentially donate overages back to noisebridge. Zine01 expenses were roughly $320 to print. We project Zine02 to cost in the $500 range to print more copies and provide business cards to the editor. We have receipts if the community would like to view our records. Gavin
3/12/2012 miloh Request for up to $300.00 of Noisebridge funds to improve the electronics area infrastructure. Up to $300.00 would be allocated for the cost of material needed to build a 4th electronics bench, an equipment hutch for the bench, and a storage cabinet for the electronics tools at Noisebridge. Any direct donations to support this project would reduce the amount used from Noisebridge funds by an equal amount.

supporting arguments:
The electronics area is a high traffic area of noisebridge that needs another soldering & lab tool bench, and a better organized storage cabinet for electronics tools. Currently lab tools are stacked on top of each other on the existing lab hutches, and electronics tools are taking up hacker alley shelf space in free floating bins that often get misplaced.
Estimated expense breakdown:

$120 qty3 plywood sheets
$30 qty10 8' 2x4's
$30 qty3  8' 1x1 moulding wood
$80 5 sets of linear drawer slides
$40 dowels, pins, misc. fasteners

Previous funding for many improvements to the electronics area have come from direct donation, including 6 sets of member shelves and hacker alley, 3 existing electronics benches, user storage bins, and many other small items like castor wheels, fasteners, and shop tools for building. Even the uhaul rental for obtaining the hackitorium lab tables was an out of pocket expense. Help Noisebridge grow up as an organization by coming together to form consenso on this small funding request.
