Having these carefully screened selection of Chinese citizens, business people and government officials immerse themselves into this incredibly unique space for a few hours and meeting with as many wonderful hackers as possible would help them best understand how Noisebridge achieves its mission to "be excellent to each other."

As a test for social experiment, we will also create a video documentation of our discovery during the expedition. The goal is to emphasize the importance of community and people in the path towards innovation. We plan to distribute this to as many people in China through free online video sharing platforms. If you would like to share with the Chinese people the value Noisebridge provided you and how to "be excellent to each other," looking forward to seeing you at the end or beginning of the Circuit Hacking Monday.

We are trying our utmost to allay suspicions any of you may have that this Makerspaces visit could be somehow designed to stealthily "share away from" (or even '''steal''')  [http://www.inquisitr.com/2297413/chinese-cyber-hackers-map-of-cyber-attacks-in-u-s-shocks-americans/ marketable technology ideas] from engaged makers/hackers, as could be indicated by the presence of Chinese government officials and business people specifically targeting such  makerspaces/hackerspaces as Noisebridge.
