- Cleaning (James) - https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Cleaning
Annual cleaning with up-to-date details on the wiki ^^^^^^^
Noisebridge will be closed this weekend for some serious cleaning
Everyone can volunteer to help with cleaning
*every* single personal project will be removed during the deep cleaning
please, Get the word out!
Someone will know what can stay and what can't
Please, come help clean -- Saturday and Sunday
Lockers will not be cleaned out
one interpretation that was posted on wiki:
your stuff must have been labelled within the last month
every personal project needs to be out of the space for the weekend
anything on the project shelves with a tag older than 4th of July 2018 *will* be thrown out
also, anything without a tag will be thrown out
People are volunteering to show up at 10am or noon, we will contact Lady Red at the end of the meeting to exchange info
There will be U-Haul truck
The truck will arrive at 8am on Sunday, ready to remove unwanted stuff
Things you can bring if you want:
- Code Tenderloin (Dawn)
Has been going for 2 years
80% job placement
6 week program (?)
The program itself has been "homeless"
Is there a way to use the space here for one of the tenderloin programs
One of the programs runs M-Th, 6pm-9pm, for example
Program size usually starts 12-15, usually shrinks down to 4-6 by the end
1 lecturer lectures for an hour, 1 or 2 TAs
3 programs, typically last 6 weeks
JRT - job readiness training
Hack Reactor prep
The ask is for one of the busiest times of the schedule (6-9pm, weeknights)
suggestion: try out the space for a day, to get the feel of the place
- Key Signing Party (Cel)
Haven't happened for a while
works best if there are more people in the strong set
strong set: connected group of people who are connected by vouching for each other
Talk to Cel if you're interested, especially if you're already in the strong set
Neil from the GnuPG Project gave an advanced introduction to PGP at Noisebridge. Here is a link to his 45 minute talk as a video!
- Philanthropist - applicant Cain
Noise Bridge Philanthropist
Some level of monthly contribution
He's helped and contributed multiple ways APPROVED
- Recap on current Consensus Items (Lady Red)
review of how consensus works at Noisebridge
- Philanthropist - applicant Claire
Part of Cypberpunks write code
Noisebridge shall establish a Discretionary Fund in order to reimburse people for small purchases that help the space. Guidelines for the discretionary fund
Spend it like it's your own money (as judiciously as you would spend your own money)
On things that the space needs to be clean, organized, smoothly operating, safe, etc
Examples of things that would be appropriate for the discretionary fund:
new bulb for projector,
low-cost useful tools,
Examples of things that may not be appropriate:
Brand new pieces of machinery that cost several hundred dollars
Items to support an individual person project
Since this inherently involves judgement calls, there should be a discretionary fund working group that shall use little-c consensus to decide if a given expense should be reimbursed.
The discretionary fund shall start with a value of 1000$ immedately, and shall recieve an additional 500$ on the first of each month from the general fund.
discussion on consensus item for the discretionary fund
committee by slack channel?
consensus can be unimplemented in worse case
monthly amount can be determined
can include an auto-expiry clause in the initial consensus item
I mean G would be fantastic but at my size even J would be an improvement. Plus I feel like J is the cutoff point between "gigantic and fun" and "gigantic and a huge pain in the ass"
I've always liked being busty but breaking the G & H Cup barrier definitely sucks. Not being able to shop in a brick-and-mortar store is a total bummer. But I feel like until I hit J I was still able to have fun with them. Now they're just a huge pain. I mean I'm big even by porn star standards
