[[user:jarrod|Jarrod]] and his worker elves would like to emphasize that Noisebridge is an important resource for people to learn and make. Noisebridge should be more than a "makerspace", Noisebridge should be a community with a social mission to bring educative and creative autonomy to as many as possible. Noisebridge has had a rough patch but they have done some good work during the recent [[Reboot]] to work toward this mission and '''it is time to attract some attention.'''
 +
 
 +
[[user:jarrod|Jarrod]] and his worker elves note that people are getting projects done there and this public hackspace thing may still be a good idea. They would like to use this upcoming MakerFaire to contrive to get people to come to Noisebridge for the first time and to then come back to Noisebridge for repeat visits. Their urge is to connect with other Hackerspaces and to strengthen relationships. They yearn to meet other hackers and makers, and to bring projects into the Noisebridge space so that others may learn from them.

====SETUP====
  
[[user:jarrod|Jarrod]] and his worker team noted that people are getting projects done at Noisebridge and that this public hackerspace thing could still be a good idea. [[user:jarrod|Jarrod]], his worker team, and their Noisebridge supporters preferred to use MakerFaire 2015 to invite people to come to Noisebridge for the first time and then contrive to get them to come back to Noisebridge for repeat visits. They anticipated connecting with other Hackerspaces and strengthening hacker relationships. They yearned to meet other hackers and makers, and encouraged them to bring their projects into the Noisebridge space so that others may learn from them.

[[user:Jarrod|Jarrod]]'s plan has been 1) to pack a whole bunch of Noisebridge into a 10' x 10' space and 2) to have a good time. Within MakerFaire 2015, [[user:Jarrod|Jarrod]] and his worker team did their best to create a mini-Hackerspace that supports the ideas and creations that others besides themselves brought. Here was [[user:Jarrod|Jarrod]]'s idea:

Essentially [[user:jarrod|Jarrod]] and his worker elves are creating a place where people can hack during the show and '''the ultimate exhibit is Noisebridge's community and its projects'''.
  
Nevertheless, the base for this space was custom furniture pieces that were made at Noisebridge -- with [[user:jarrod|Jarrod]]'s love -- for hacking. (When all you know is design and woodworking, every answer tends to be custom furniture). The centerpiece of this affair was a new work table with built in power outlets and a bright flashy Noisebridge logo on the top. A table that people could pull up a chair to and start working on a project. If there were other things that we should have tried to incorporate into the hacking table, let us know after MakerFaire. The back of the booth had a set of rearrangeable cabinets that store tools and projects for use during the show and support and audio/video system for demonstrations and presentation during the show.

'''Every Thursday 19:00 to 22:00''' we will meet at Noisebridge, likely in the shop, to work on building things for the booth. This includes the furniture and whatever else is being prepped for MakerFaire. Updates to this process will be posted on the mailing list and the blog.

Ideally, everyone would have been able to go down to MakerFaire and check out the neat stuff. For those that couldn't, [[user:jarrod|Jarrod]], his team members, and their supporters have suggested an upcoming event to bring in makers who are in town to talk about their projects and to meet up with other hackers/makers. [[user:jarrod|Jarrod]]'s team and their supporters have been thinking about a special Five Minutes of Fame and a mellow cocktail party event that could hopefully raise significant additional funds for the space.
