Did we miss anybody?
Noisebridge has introduced itself to us and we have introduced ourselves to noisebridge so we're good. We're going to touch on things briefly.
Participation - "anyone can participate".
Safe space - " Noisebridge is considered a safe space because we want people to hack, especially people who don't have other venues to hack"
Victoria - glad it's a sentence.
Membership binder. You can be a member of the noisebridge if you want.
What's a member? What do you think? Chill out and work on things here. Charlie - being a member is different than just coming here ot hack. It's more for people who want to demonstrate commitment on a concrete level. You can apply to be a member and can block consensus if a big decision happens.  We'll talk about consensus later. Anyway yeah.
PBS membership! You get a badge.
Victoria - it's more like sierra club.
You get mail about board electrions. Sierra club is full of shit.
Membership binder - what's a philantropist? You're a sustaining member of PBS and get to watch all the shows at noisebridge. You get to do everything just like anyone but you can also close down the space if you're the last person. and you pay money. And you get 24/7 access.
Reader submission - lizzie wants to be a philantropist. So does chris venter and patrick minault. All accepted??
You can't block shit if you're a philantropist. and it can be revoked.  If lizzie shits in the woodshop she can stop being a philantropist.
No one objects! am philantropist. Rights and philantropist.  Needs money.
Membership applications are in this binder. There's a long wiki page about membership. You get two members. We talk about it four weeks. We ask you personal questions. We gossip. We reveal whether or not we've consensed.
Consensus - anyone can block other members. Rationale is that person blocking may not want to explain.
Financial reports -  ????
Explanation of Consensus - lizzie said this so didn't type it.
Victoria - blocking is more like "if this proposal happens, I will walk away from noisebridge". Block is a "slow down", not a "no".
But 99% of things are just things people do. You don't need consensus for everything. Doocracy!
Rafeal - Big C - trying to modify the physical space, or move noisebridge, or something. Little c is like "I decide we have too many oscilloscopes. let's move some."
Discussion items-
Jacob - wants to get a group for a few conferences in the summer: Defcon, a few others. Has a 2016 van. Wants to go.
Jeremy - just being a jackass. Possessed?
Jacob has a van. Wants to network with people who want to go. Exchange contact info. July 27th! Las Vegas! Defcon is the world's biggest "family oriented hacking event". Not hacking bad. Head of NSA goes. Security conference. 12h drive. There's a documentary. You can get whatever kind of experience you want. 4-day event. dontworrybehappyplease@aol.com .
Friend Ivan wants to talk about etching boards with acid and lasers.
Keita - doing a meetup about ios development. Weekend-gathering-style-meetup. We all design or discuss an ios topic. Met Ruth. Wants a key so he can do Sunday meetups.
Rosse - interviews people about corporate work environments. If someone works in a large office. Contact me@rossegates.com
