= Introductions =

= Instructions =
  
Mitch - we stay alive by being cool. I travel around the world doing
+
Congratulations and/or condolences! You're reading this because you're participating in a meeting of Noisebridge!
  
Cory - I've been around tech places and have taught classes and teach kids and love STEAM
+
Meetings should be limited to an hour when possible. Shorter is fine, but avoid rushing.
  
Shane - 2nd time here, I'm an engineer and I made a cnc machine once
+
You should read this instructional section thoroughly, and treat them as a guideline for how to host a meeting of Noisebridge. There are three ingredients to an [[Excellent]] meeting: A number of note takers, some facilitators, and participants.
  
Chris - biochem no computers *eyes glaze over*
+
Meetings are just one of the tools used at Noisebridge to create net forward progress on whatever it is we're all trying to do. Meetings aren't the only way to make decisions or have discussions, and in fact its usually a much better idea to talk about things outside the meeting before dragging the entire community kicking and screaming into it.
  
patrick - playz with toys and count NB bucks
+
== Note Takers ==
 +
# Confirm last meeting was saved
 +
# Take new notes
 +
# Save and share the notes at the end of the meeting (instructions at the bottom).
  
Morris - xchange student from sweeden. it is my first time here
+
== Facilitators ==
  
Trent - python & web dev & does consulting with you and your company and teaches python and learning a lot of C
+
There are generally two kinds of facilitator roles at a Noisebridge meeting:
  
Darryl - I teach laser cutting. I do some robotics and AI
+
* Stack taker - Useful when a lot of folks want to hop on the discussion stack. This gives everyone a turn to have their feelings heard. Usually only works when there is exactly one stack taker.
 +
* Moderators - Keeps the meeting moving and prevents everyone from wasting too much time on one subject. Anyone is free to pick up moderation and move the meeting along.
  
Jarrod - I'm a designer and make things
+
In general, moderators should:
 +
* Understand the structure of Noisebridge [[consensus|decision-making]]
 +
* Make sure everyone gets a chance to speak.
 +
* Speak only minimally yourself.
 +
* Keep the meeting moving, and avoid getting bogged down.
 +
* Identify discussion items, arrange times limits for talking about each item.
 +
* Identify and summarize consensus, suggest things that need to be done.
 +
* '''Get the [[membership binder]] and ensure that it is returned safely.'''
  
John - I have a beard and do taxes
+
== Participants ==
  
Alex - gamebridge whatup on tuesdays and we want to make a VR game thing at makerfare
+
Everyone at a Noisebridge meeting who has consented to participating in one is a participant!
  
Quintessa - I don't come here but once a week and want to make a recording studio. I brought a bunch of foam. WHERE IS LEE
+
* Say your name before you talk.
 +
* Remain on-topic, and speak as concisely as possible.
 +
* Assist the note-taker with any links or corrections that are needed.
 +
* Remain respectful of other participants, their time, and the consensus and moderation process.
  
Juan - I 3D print and security and in between projects

<blockquote>Being a member of Noisebridge is not like being a member of a gym or your local chess club. Anyone can come to Noisebridge to hack and learn: you don't need to be a member for that. At Noisebridge, membership is something different: it means taking responsibility and committing to help to maintain, improve, and govern Noisebridge. As a member of Noisebridge, you don't just come here to hack and learn, you actively work to improve what you see around you, help to deal with problems, and make this community and space better than it is today.</blockquote>

+
* '''invite a knowledgeable volunteer to give '''[[Consensus Process|a brief primer on consensus process]]
 
+
* It is important that everyone in attendance understands at least:
Big C consensus - Has something that has an effect on everyone in the community - Has to be accpected by everyone. If you have objects, you have have to presents counterprosal to what the other person what to happen. Also, it ok, if nothing happen.
+
** Blocking with verbalized principled objections.
 
+
** Why we use consensus over other approaches to decision making.
Introduction of philanthopy was a Big C consensus,
+
** How consensus isn't a legislative process
 
+
** Why consensus isn't applicable to some things like conflict resolution, resolution of time sinks, and the like.
how it works at first meeting you have your proposal, and the next 2 weeks there is a debate on your proposal. and the thrid week is the member vote yes or no. But if does not passed does not mean, it killed forever but it just did not fit noisebridge at this point and time. And you need everyone to agree.
 
 
 
Big C consenus, Last June was the last Big C consensus item.
 
 
 
Concept of Block, nonuseful tool, thermal nuclar option of consensus, "You as a Member will Walk away from Noisebridge, if something passed"; should only be use as the ultimate pressure. Only members can block
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Littel C consensus is just Do-Ocaracy and be excellent to each other.
 
Any member, can block someone for membership.
