"FractalWorkingGroup" is both a group and a concept. The members of the FractalWorkingGroup are working to develop and improve the concept of a Noisebridge working group to serve the following purposes:

  • to establish a basis of functionality that makes it easy for new groups to spin up (and fade away);
  • for members to find satisfying engagement in the Noisebridge community;
  • for Noisebridge as a space and as a community to continue to improve and be maintained well;
  • to encourage experimentation in social structures (policy, governance, size, attention to documentation, etc);
  • to allow Noisebridge as an entity to adjust rapidly to changes both internal and external.

Concept

"work in progress -- please edit as you see fit!"

Based upon the mathematical concept of a fractal, the Noisebridge "Fractal Working Group" concept entails the following:

  • a group can begin with an individual or group of individuals at any time, for any reason.
  • a group may spin off subgroups as needed or desired, which may have chartered time limits (or not).
  • subgroups can expect no "control" from their "parent" group, but should probably check in from time to time, the idea being to keep the community informally informed of all of the goings-on at Noisebridge.
  • a group without a parent is considered to have all of Noisebridge as its "parent".
  • groups may change their style of decision-making to whatever the members of the group would like. Full consensus should be considered the "default setting".
  • groups should use the lessons learned from operation to make proposals and recommendations to the Noisebridge General Meeting.
  • groups should seek in all respects of operation to uphold the Noisebridge Mission Statement.

Recommendations

"""not requirements!"""

  • Groups should have meetings and take meeting notes, much like the Noisebridge General Meeting.
  • Groups should have a wiki page linked below, to make sure people can find out about the groups and what they're about.
