* There's a PA system here; are people interested in keeping it here as a loaner item? Rachel -- Thinks it a fine idea. We should check that it is a actual donation to Noisebridge. No guarantees. Although stuff "Opens door to a lending library of things" Steen -- lots of things are useful for different folks, there is a fine line when things are taken out of the space, for any reason. Josh -- desire to keep the library as a purely REference Library Christie -- 2 books are missing from the library Micheal -- brought books back and borrowed them.. Josh -- Multiple copies are fine to remove borrow for temporary times, "its odd to have someone walk off with a shared resource" Steen -- barcode/qcat isbn/ database would be fun to build

Mike K. -- the PA is large and shows a trend towards accepting many things that may push us or our use of the space out of it.

Steen -- ensure these things are true permanent donations

Rachel keeping on

steen -Wire spooler might need to go away josh -- wire spooler has been useful on several occasions -- Cat5 runs


Steen -- Could put mail to the list for a lending library for smaller objects or nonphysical objects and the logistics

Lending Library to be dicussed on the following week week

NEED CONSENSUS DECISION ON LENDING JUST THE PA AND ENSURING ITS A PERMANENT DONATION

*Noisebridge Buttons Steen: Trista has Noisebridge buttons from Etsy! She is selling them for $1 a piece to support Noisebridge. Find Steen to support Noisebridge by buying buttons.

* Consensus decision on going to Maker Faire as an official Noisebridge entity No opposition in the meeting to going to the maker faire Rachel -- 1> by the end of the month have a proposal to submit 2> afaik there is no requirements for payment 3> the maker area will be used, some # of passes will be available 4> 5 people swapped passes last year 5> NANA would appreciate RIDESHARE easy to get there from Train if you can walk a DISTANCE.. 6> Miloh asks: What do we want to TAKE there? Personal Projects or Collaborations? No problems voiced with any of these ideas of things to bring. 7> tables and chairs will be necessary. 8> Consensus is Reiterated... Maker FAIR CONSENSUS REACHED
