Discussion Notes

  • Ryan was not available during the meeting. When we reached the discussion stage of the meeting, some folks said that they had seen him show up to the meeting late without introducing himself, but that he had already left. Since he was asked to leave and refused to comply, and was asked to come to a meeting but did not do so, we all agree that if any of us see Ryan, we will tell him to leave and not return.
  • Carl says that he will talk with with Lilly about not using Noisebridge in lieu of a place to live when he next sees her.
  • We then had the usual discussion about people using the space for undesirable purposes. Miloh emphasized the need for regular cleaning & maintenance of the space.
