Membership Binder [edit]

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.

Jarrod - Membership gives you consenship, keep noisebrige intresting and funtioning , and sort through the diffuclut sitution at noisbrige. members become members through consensus at meetings, it allows you access to voting on big changes at noisebridge

To become member have to send application to binder and requires 2 members and members will decide if you are a goood with. You have to wait 4 meetings before final consensus to allow them to be a member

Membership gives you a bunch of reposiblilty but

Mila and Lessie in binder, possile membership at next meeting

Jarrod - Membership is not a membership Lite posision, hacker but not responible for noisebrige as members are responsibles. Also,

Mitch - You do not need to be a member, to do anything at noisebridge, and the only thing it let you get invovle in consenuship process.

Financial Report[edit]

  • Funds in bank:about 85,787.45 in bank
  • Any other details by those participating in handling our financials

about 8000 in equiptment fund (matching up to 2500).

Funds maybe use for books,and maybe be an discussion on around makeing the equipment fund match

Trent organize the library, and "no strach press" stated to mitch that they will give any books we want to noisebridge

Noise Tour - is fund to run noisbridge exe. node and let people .

Mitch - Want to raise money to buy building, and not be at the demand of SF rent prices

Noisebridge Group how to make $1M to noisebridge


Patrict - how do you run anarchist hacker space, consensus is oppoist of majority run, therer are two formsand little C - getting someone opiion before you destroy a wall [common courticy] - floating feedback to see if people is ok with it. ex. Library created

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.

Introduction of philanthopy was a Big C consensus,

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.
