Short announcements and events

- Patrick - Toorcamp is happening in June and you should come with Noisecamp!
- Jarrod - membership at noisebridge is not like a gym, it's a position of responsibility and stewardship for noisebridge. They have no power over others in the space, and are expected to promote excellence in the space. They have a financial obligation to support the space with monthly dues. The best way to become a member is to stick around for a while and get to know the members, and see that it's the place for you. It takes time to determine if it's a fit for you. But once you decide you fill out a membership application and stick it in the binder, get two other members to sponsor your application, and have it read out at 4 consecutive meetings. After 4 meetings if you're present and have the sponsors your membership becomes a consensus item to be discussed and passed.
- Alex - things that come with membership - granting 30 day anonymous RFID access, sponsoring philanthropists, and having a say in the acceptance of philanthropists and members.
