Noisebridge booth

[1] is May 21 and 22 at the San Mateo County Expo Center. If you'd like to help set up/run the booth this year, please add your contact info below. NB should be getting 12-15 free passes for volunteers who work at least a 4-hour shift. First come, first served!

Mitch will be setting up a huge Hardware Hacking Area again this year. If the NB volunteer quota is full, consider working at HHA - you're free to mill about once your shift is done. The HHA wiki also has good directions to the Faire.

Projects/Items Displayed in the Booth

This is the section where we outline projects, demos, talks, etc. and when/how often they might occur.

If you'd like to bring something to show in the Noisebridge booth, please list it here and contact emprameen at
