Noisebridge booth[edit | edit source]

[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.

Rikke, Rolf, Sean C, and others will be showing off the BioBoard, our project for the Global Hackerspace Challenge that recently finished. We expect this will be part of the Noisebridge booth but probably on a separate table. If all goes well, we will have a large vat of Kombucha with various sensor probes immersed in it, and showing some live graphs of what is going on.

Projects/Items Displayed in the Booth[edit | edit source]

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
