[edit] Discussion Notes

[edit] Ryan's behavior

[edit] Preface

Mitch posted the following to noisebridge-discuss on Tuesday 2013-02-19:

Ryan was here tonight. He said he was at the meeting last week, but left early. I asked him why he came without discussing matters at the meeting first. He argued in a raised, excited voice. After some non-useful back-and-forth, I lost it. I told him he had to leave. After much ado, he left. Leif and others who will be at the meeting were present for this unfortunate occurrence.
It seems to me that Ryan doesn't belong at Noisebridge. He does do something with servers here, which may be some sort of hacking. He also sleeps here. And he lies when confronted with this. He's also agro about his sense of entitlement about being at Noisebridge. If others at he meeting think he belongs at Noisebridge, then I would find that unfortunate, but this is up to people at the meeting. And, unfortunately, I can't be there tomorrow night. Ryan said he would be at the meeting.

See also the notes from last week's discussion, and Mitch's previous email on this topic. Ryan did not participate in last week's meeting.

[edit] Discussion

An animated conversation ensued. Ryan was instructed to leave. He was instructed not return for any reason at any time. An advocate of his may arrange mediation with those who have taken issue with his behavior.

[edit] Cameron

Cameron was asked to leave on Sunday after he was seen picking up a phone which did not seem to be his. Cameron initially refused to leave and was not polite about it. Rob rapidly persuaded Cameron to leave. Rob has previously found Cameron investigating the member shelves in manner that appeared less than above board. Cameron states that he was searching for his own lost property on the hacker shelves.

A heated discussion ensued, pitting fact against counterfact. Nothing is certain now; all is flux.
