Hooray!  We're so glad you want to visit.  Noisebridge is a space that has been [[Noisebridge Vision|designed since its inception]] to be open to pretty much all hackers 24/7.  We especially welcome those who like to tinker and hack on things, and those who are generally nice. On average, we [[Community_standards#Do_Not_Want | do not want]] people looking for a halfway house to sleep in, using the space to store their items, coming here to indefinitely "borrow" or outright steal things, or being on the lookout for people to annoy.  Read here for more [[Visitor advice]] on our culture and some suggestions on how to interface with it. Our collectivist [[Do-ocracy]] -style anarchy is often strange to people who are accustomed to more authoritarian structures, and many new visitors are initially confused on how things work or who they should talk to about things. You can get an excellent gist of cutting-edge happenings by reading the [[Last_meeting|notes from our latest weekly meeting]].

If you are inside Noisebridge and want to open the gate for someone outside you can look through the handy-dandy "periscope" closed-circuit camera to see who's there.
