Lockers are a limited resource at Noisebridge. In this post-scarcity economy, we’ve only got a finite number of ‘em. Please be excellent to your fellow hackers by making sure that you’re not holding one of them without using it.

* [[New Lockers]] here! *

We are starting up talk of Lockers again (December 2013). There was a past discussion but '''that was then and this is now'''
  
'''HOW TO LOCKER AT NOISEBRIDGE'''
+
* ''Theft and things being moved around and lost has been a large problem at Noisebridge for years. It would be nice if members had a place to store their belongings in a secure manner at the space, and this would encourage people to work on long-term projects instead of having to constantly haul them from home to the space to avoid getting them stolen.''
 +
* Lockers provide ethical revenue stream for Noisebridge + enable creativity
 +
* Lockers give more of a sense of ownership and encourage more frequent physical visits to the space

'''HOW TO BE A GARBAGE COLLECTOR (THIS IS A LONG TERM COMMITMENT)'''
+
Our current shelves are 13" deep x 12" tall.  An entire shelf is 48" wide.  An entire set of shelves is about 7'2" tall.
  
#Put fresh "[[still in use verification]]" sheets on each locker. The sheets should have blank name/date fields and a deadline to sign and date it by.
+
== Costs ==
#Announce the upcoming garbage collection pass to lockers@lists.noisebridge.net
 
#Wait a reasonable period of time. For example, one month is pretty darn reasonable. Two weeks seems ok if you are extra careful to hunt people down on the mailing list and proxy sign their sheet. Some locker users might be out of town and need the extra time.
 
#Cut off the locks from all the lockers that have blank "still in use verification" sheets and have not been claimed in response to the announcement.
 
#Put the contents in an egg crate on the project shelves labeled with the Locker #

Costs can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. There is a lot of stuff on Craigslist that can be had for free
  
'''HOW TO NOT LOCKER AT NOISEBRIDGE'''

* '''Summary:'''  There was some kind of big discussion in 2011 about having lockers at Noisebridge. It appears that the group opinion went against having lockers. But that was then and this is now.
  
'''SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS'''

[http://www.yelp.com/c/sf/selfstorage There are numerous secure self-storage facilities in the city of San Francisco]. Noisebridge is not one of them.

In the distant past and again in February 2011, there was discussion of re-organizing the member shelves, hack shelves, and also possibly day-use shelves into an organized set of lockers. The result of these discussions has been that we do not have lockers.
 +
 
 +
If you're interested in understanding the reasons why, you should read [https://www.noisebridge.net/pipermail/noisebridge-discuss/2011-February/thread.html#21036 these] [https://www.noisebridge.net/pipermail/noisebridge-discuss/2011-February/thread.html#21081 two] threads from February.
 +
 
 +
The plan, as it was proposed in February 2011:
 +
* '''Both''' member shelves and day-use shelves would be consolidated with lockers.
 +
* Some '''(not all)''' shelves would be re-purposed for use as additional hack shelves or shelves for larger projects.
 +
* Lockers could '''optionally''' be closed, so nobody else can see your stuff (out of sight, out of mind).
 +
* Lockers would use '''optional''' bring-your-own-lock security.
 +
* Lockers would also be numbered, un-labeled, and anonymous.
 +
* Hack shelves would remain as separate shelves, publicly accessible to everybody.  Keeping hack shelves separate from the lockers will hopefully result in people feeling more confident in using stuff on the hack shelves.

==Some People Don't Like The Idea Of Locking Things At Noisebridge==
 +
 
 +
If you think a locker at Noisebridge would be useful, you are invited to attend a meeting of [[Locks!|the lockpicking group]]. They meet infrequently, usually on Sundays, but if you're interested someone would probably be glad to teach you about locks some other time too.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
A discussion  list member raised a worthwhile point.
 +
<blockquote>Seems like a fine experiment but I would treat it as an experiment
 +
rather than a solution.
 +
 
 +
Lockers for people to store their stuff would be very valuable to many
 +
people in San Francisco, not necessarily for hacker/maker projects,
 +
but to keep their basic most important stuff in life from being stolen
 +
because they have nowhere secure to keep it. Do we want to be in that
 +
business?
